Position of responsibility, leadership as a site Construction Manager/Sr. Projects Superintendent/Traveling.

Would like to join a team of successful, energetic and driven persons to apply the Tenured 30+ years of experience in the construction industry, development and Owner

- developer sector. I have humbly achieved and assisted in the successful completion of numerous projects spanning venues such as commercial, industrial, Federal, State/Municipal, housing, owner / developer, both private and public, investment, joint partnerships and more. My goal is active participation in all phases of the management, administrative, supervisory process leading up to the award of projects and then the execution (I am accustomed to the RFP reviews, Preliminary Estimation Participation, Interview, Marketing, Post Award DD Estimation, Set-up OAC and Management Processes, Scheduling and Logistics, Owner Representation, etc.) Building teams from within the organization as well as alliances with our Subcontractors -close adherence to safety, calculated oversight of project at hand, aggressive performance to exceed schedule demands, track budgets carefully, familiarizing myself with company standards and core values, while bringing in new ideas and a unique character (which generally make me unorthodox) and effectively and persuasively taking the lead and setting the example in integrity, transparency, honesty, principle and vigilance.


For the last 20 years I have successfully completed extensive and costly commercial, municipal, state and federal projects. ALWAYS ahead of schedule. In states of NH, MA, ME, NY, Conn, MT, ND, OK, TX, AR, WYO, CO, LA, NV, NE and Washington, DC and Overseas.

These projects consist of housing projects (executive living, resort lifestyle living, low income housing, student housing), schools, Public and Private housing, Healthcare, Civil, Correctional, Judicial (court houses), University and Higher Learning facilities, Aviation (airport), TI, Design Build, Remodeling, expansions and renovations, commercial/international headquarters, oil and gas facilities, industrial manufacturing facilities, custom homes, bridge and highway projects, Consulting and in house management, and more.

These experiences have made me adaptable to a multitude of environments as well as Company Legacies and Cultures both in the industry and in communities where all this took place.

I have especially had the honor to work on high security sites for branches of the military as well as Law enforcement.

All the experiences have taught me the humility of approach to this responsibility in that no ONE person can accomplish so much alone; only with the collaborative and cooperative efforts of all involved can success be attained. Recognizing each and all as individuals with various gifts and talents which are to be embraced, nurtured, encouraged and mentored.

My safety record is a most important accomplishment. Therefore, I have consistently been upgraded on my OSHA certifications (30), as well as First Aid and CPR. Other weekly and Monthly training and committees have been incorporated over the years. As my family is grown and (2) children- Ashley, Brittney- successfully on with their lives. Therefore, I am free to pursue responsibilities abroad unfettered. Thus I am willing to travel as my responsibilities may require. Free time is spent in the mountains...far away from the populous. Enjoy entertaining quests (Minimally). Planning a trip to Scotland to meet distant relatives. Steak and Lobster if you please. I enjoy my coffee. So, if you want to see me at peak performance, bring it Large, Hot, and with cream and sugar when you come out to the site to visit. Oh and my favorite color is Navy Blue. I do have a sense of humor.
