My dad worked as a construction superintendent, and he would often need to make quick visits to his job sites on weekends. As I often went on site with him, this early exposure to construction developed my interest in the industry and building design, in general. After serving a couple of years in the military, I enrolled at the University of Cincinnati (UC) in the architectural engineering program. In 2016, I graduated from UC and accepted a job with a construction general contractor in the architectural department.
In 2017, I bought a vintage house circa 1849 that needed repair and immediately began a multi-year restoration project. Since then, I have gained a lot of respect for older structures and an understanding of what it takes to preserve them. Preservation involves not only repairing damage, but also taking preventative measures to ensure the structure’s longevity.
In 2022, I shifted gears in my career and accepted a job offer at THP working in the restoration service group. As part of THP’s team, I use my passion for restoring and preserving building structures every day. I quickly learned that each building is different and has its own unique difficulties to work around. I enjoy finding solutions for those difficulties and developing plans to support those buildings.
