I like what I do because… The relationships I develop with my clients are genuine win-win, mutually beneficial relationships. It is rewarding for me to provide a service to my client that truly creates value for their asset portfolios that, in most cases, far outweighs my team’s financial impact on the client.
The most interesting building I’ve worked on is… The Hollywood Casino located in Lawrenceburg, IN. The main casino (gambling) floor had the unique challenge of requiring it to be built floating on the Ohio River to comply with local gaming laws. The construction type, equipment used, and even operation personnel was sometimes pulled from the traditional building industry and other times from the Marine industry. All of the systems and ancillary, connected, buildings functioned as one seamless facility to meet the clients, and client’s customers, entertainment needs!
My favorite mode of transportation is… Sailing! I enjoy the freedom of sailing; it brings me closer to nature and away from the hustle and bustle of major cities. It is the amazing to me that one of the most sustainable modes of transportation that exists today is still one of the oldest ever created!
