Growing up in a small farm town and the eldest of 10 children, I was my father's right hand man, helping him build numerous houses and other construction projects. I quickly learned that not only did I like working with my hands and building things, I also had a deep curiosity of how things worked. It was tackling new projects small or large that inspired me to dig a little deeper, hence the passion I have today for field of construction. As an adult my interests in construction, technology, sports and people helped shape how I run my business today. Having worked in different industries - an internet company and snowboard company, I also helped develop one of the largest avocado groves in the United States. Thank goodness I like avocados! In each of these different paths, I discovered my strength for understanding. Whether it's bricks and mortar, avocados or computers - it's working well with people, that melds any project to its successful completion.
My ability to stay focused on the details, problem solve and orchestrate all the moving parts, while maintaining a friendly rapport with my clients gives me an advantage to meet and exceed the goals and needs of my clients. And of course behind every project are scores of people contributing, each in their own way, adding to the overall success of a project.
Construction to me is more about building teams and less about building things. "Sound" teams lead to "Sound" projects. That's the Sound Construx, Inc. way.
