How or why did you get into construction?
I was 12 years old when I completed my first construction job. My dad asked me to help build a wall in Miles-McClellan's very first office space (1979). I was paid a generous $.50 per hour and worked eight hours. I received an additional $1.00 bonus for my efforts — bringing home a total of $5.00. The same night a large snowstorm hit the area. My brother woke up and shoveled the neighbor's driveway. His job took an hour, and he was paid $5.00. On that very day, I became hooked to hard work and low margins! Of course I am kidding — the real lesson was to become self-employed — accept the risk and the reward.
What do you like the most about Central Ohio?
I love watching Columbus change and evolve. Downtown is becoming a vibrant neighborhood and this change is exciting to watch and interact with. As my kids get older, I know Columbus will be an enriching, safe city in which they can raise their own families.
What is the best compliment anyone could give you?
Telling me or saying that I am absolutely a “man of my word.” I would like to think that we could return to old-school agreements on a napkin.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
What is something on your bucket list?
I would like to bicycle across the United States along the Northern Tier US Bicycle route from Oregon to Maine.
