WHY DID YOU CHOOSE DANIELS?

I was looking for a program with the best business minds in the area. After I surveyed everyone in my network, both professionally and personally, Daniels College of Business stood head and shoulder above the rest.

PREVIOUS EDUCATION

BS in Construction Management, Colorado State University

PRE-GRAD SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

I have been fortunate enough to manage projects all along the Colorado Front Range, including portions of major projects like Denver Union Station, 225 Light Rail, Cimarron and I-25, and smaller but impactful projects like Levitt Pavilion, Great Outdoors Water Park and many others. In the more recent stages of my career, I’ve helped construction companies expand their work into fields of advanced sciences, aerospace and higher-ed research facilities.

POST GRAD SCHOOL GOAL

I hope to harness the power of successful business in order to bring advanced technology to the public sector and subsequently change the way cities operate for the better.

HOBBIES

Like most who are drawn to Colorado, I spend my free time in the mountainous outdoors when I can get some. A few years ago, I obtained my private pilot’s license and a Cessna 182, and I have combined the two to explore the mountain West by air and by hiking boot.
