Title: Managing director, construction management services
Main focus of your job: Provide full service POC project management from building tours to the ribbon cutting party.
Years on the job: 0.45
Memorable project: Repositioning of 1129 20th St NW, completed in 2009. One of the first buildings downtown to add floors to the top, tear off and replace the facade on all four sides, plus a gut/redesign main lobby, all while occupied. To this day I still don't know how we pulled it off.
Current project: Building a rooftop basketball court on an office—the first and only in DC. No easy feat when you think about bouncing a basketball 5 feet above a paying tenant's head.
CRE career: Studied and started out in architecture, but in the summers and winters worked on construction sites swinging a hammer. Architecture led to working for a general contractor, which led to working for a general contractor/project manager, which led to working on the project management side for owners and tenants.

Hidden talent: Watching a movie once and then being able recite every line the next time I see it. My wife won't watch a movie with me that I've seen before.

Thing you couldn't live without: Flip-flops.
Family: Wife, Kristen (7 years), four children.

Pet peeve: Toilet paper sitting on top of the bar rather than actually on the bar. Seriously, how long does that take to do?
Startling fact: My oldest child is now 6, but at one point we had kids ages 3, 2, 1 and a newborn. I do not recommend this to anyone.
