I am a highly motivated individual who works well with or without direct supervision. I have excellent problem solving skills and I am able to multitask to keep projects on time while starting new projects. I have worked with computer programs such as Office, Excel and Word and various other computer programs involving payroll and safety.

I read blueprints, preform carpentry work, plumbing, electrical work, and I also arrange for the maintaining of building landscaping. I have managed several different HVAC and Building Automation Systems.

At the Parkwood Corporation, I oversaw the $3,000,000 renovation of their new headquarters building in downtown Cleveland.
