What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I am focused on K-12 education projects currently. In the future, I’d like to incorporate design concepts and materials typically seen on “large scale” higher education type projects, into the K-12 environment.

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? I enjoy each evening with my wife (Chassidy) and my daughters (Cambrie & Lena). Every night is something different, and they all keep me busy! I also enjoy photography; so I’m always taking photos and practicing my editing techniques on them!

Favorite book or author: Stephen King

Favorite movie: “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back”

Last song you downloaded? “Title and Registration” by Death Cab for Cutie

One word to describe your work environment: Spirited 

Rules to live by in business: Always be yourself, and don’t be intimidated by the thought of being honest – the foundations of the greatest relationships are built on honesty.

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go?  Jim Carrey.  I’m undecided on a destination; I guess we’ll have to book it and then figure it out from there…

What is your dream job?  A Theatrical Set Designer.  I’ve always been intrigued by sets created for movies and musicals.  The idea that a team can create an environment that transports the viewer into another world or atmosphere amazes me.
