My entire family is from Southeast South Dakota where my dad grew up on a dairy farm and began his career making cheese. I was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin while my dad was making cheese for Kraft. My family then moved to Manteca, California after a few years in Wisconsin and then moved to Littleton, Colorado in September of 1988 when my dad started working at Leprino Foods.
I graduated from Columbine High School in 2002 and then graduated from Colorado State University in Fort Collins in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management and a minor in Business Administration.
I started my professional career in 2007 working for a small General Contractor building banks. I was an Assistant Superintendent for a year and a Superintendent for two years. In 2010, I traded my Carhartts for dress pants and joined Fransen Pittman’s preconstruction department as an Estimator. This was the first time I had ever worked in an office! Now, as Preconstruction Director, I am passionate about owner involvement in the early stages of design and conveying how project dollars are prioritized and allocated.
My hobbies are my family! I have been married to my best friend, Laura, for 15 years and we have two amazing kids – daughter, Ziah, and son, David. We have lived in Parker for 12 years and now live in Castle Pines. We are surrounded by a great community of friends and family, and it seems we constantly have those friends and family at our house doing life together.
I was born and raised here in Colorado. I grew up enjoying the benefits of the Colorado environment through fly fishing, camping, snowboarding, and being outside all together. I have spent my time in other states throughout my career, but the experiences that I enjoyed growing up have always pulled me back.
I had wanted to attend Colorado School of Mines since I was eight years old. Following high school, I was able to make that a reality. Focusing on my passion for material and mechanical part design, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. The multi-faceted engineering education I was able to obtain from CMS immediately opened the doors to a career in the construction industry.
My professional career started as a Petroleum/Chemical Engineer in the oil industry. Here, I managed the technical teams in multiple areas of the US in well treatment design and preparation. The position allowed me to travel around the US and exercise my desire to design and create. As the industries ebb and flow, I transitioned over to construction through concrete. I spent time project managing and estimating structural and site concrete with a Colorado group prior to finding my home here at FP. FP has allowed me to continue to develop my construction acumen, and has provided the opportunity to be a part of meaningful and rewarding builds that support local communities and families.
I continue to enjoy the outdoor activities from my childhood, and now I can share them with my own family. When I am not on the river camping or fishing, I am home barbecuing and spending time with friends and family.
Though I am originally from Colorado, I attended Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas where I earned my BBA in Management and Marketing.
I have been with FP for over seven years and since my start have become a LEED Green Associate and a Certified Quality Assurance Technician.
After college, I returned to Colorado where I like to spend time with my wife and dog enjoying the outdoors. I can be found boating and water skiing in the summer and skiing and snowboarding in the winter. You can also catch me at one of FP’s intramural games- I never turn down a good old-fashioned competition and enjoy anything that is team sport related.
I grew up in Boulder City, Nevada, outside of Las Vegas. Most of my memories revolve around swimming, with my mom as the swim coach. I ended up being recruited to swim at the University of Denver.
At DU, I majored in Real Estate and the Built Environment with a concentration in Construction Management. As a swimmer, I participated in NCAA championships all four years and became All American my junior year, placing seventh in the mile. I also competed at the Olympic trials twice in 2012 and 2016.
I started working for Fransen Pittman as a project Engineer in May of 2016. I was given the opportunity to transition to be an onsite Project/Field Engineer for several ground-up schools. I’m currently in Preconstruction, estimating many projects and using what I learned in operations to make the transition from Pre-Con to Operations smoother.
I enjoy playing with my dog Oscar, who I regularly bring to the office. Follow him on Instagram (@oscartheminigoldendoodle). I still swim, but more so to stay in shape. When the weather is nice, I enjoy being outside either camping, spelunking, hiking, fishing, overlanding, or modifying my Tacoma.
I was born in Wichita, Kansas, though I grew up in east Africa because my father was a missionary doctor (Pathologist) in rural clinics around Nairobi, Kenya.
I earned a bachelor's degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University.
Even growing up in Africa, I have always had a passion for constructing. I enjoy the opportunities to form new relationships with each new project, and I always strive to exceed expectations with clients. Working with other professionals in a common goal of bringing an idea into reality has always been an incredibly rewarding experience. It’s like farming. You get to physically see and touch the result of all your labor and it’s very satisfying to be able to do that. It’s a noble trade and I feel privileged to work alongside so many extraordinary people.
I currently live in Northern Colorado with my wife, Julia, and our five children. I met my wife in Fort Collins when I was attending CSU for Construction Management. We were both on the church worship team together, and the story goes that Julia couldn’t believe how good I was on the drums. Now, we enjoy the rural lifestyle and being involved in our kids' 4H Community. My children compete in shooting sports and swine market livestock. Jack (my oldest) and I enjoy large game hunting and pheasant hunting here in Colorado.
I grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, a failed steel town and hometown of the great Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini and the Italian and Irish mobsters which earned it the name of Crimetown, USA in the 70s. My parents still live in the house I grew up in. We rode motorcycles, bikes, and played football. I knew from an early age I wanted to get out of the area at any cost. My junior year of high school, I enlisted in the Navy and left shortly after graduation. After the Navy, I went to The Ohio State University and fell in love with climbing. I moved to Colorado in 1996 in my rebuilt VW bus to pursue my climbing passion. I summited Denali in 1998, then turned my focus on my family.
I have a degree in Philosophy from The Ohio State University and a Project Management degree from CSU. I have my PMI PMP, and Radon Inspector certification, LEED AP, Storm Water Management, and OSHA 30-hour certification.
I began my construction career as a wood frame carpenter and moved through the residential management track before switching to the commercial construction side. I have worked for commercial contractors, build to suite developers, and as an Owner’s Representative.
My current passions are motorcycles-riding, riding and rebuilding/restoring old BMWs, mountain biking, travel, shooting competitively (3-gun and NRL22), and trying to complete the top 100 list of must-read books (I’m currently at 46 of 100).
I am a full-blooded Coloradan, and I grew up in Westminster, CO. I graduated from Northglenn High School. Growing up, I always had a passion for math and building/doing things that allowed me to look back at quality finished product. This is what really lead me to construction from a very young age.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in Construction management with a minor in Business Administration. This allowed me to bolster my love for math and the built environment in the best ways possible. During my tenure at Fransen Pittman, I have earned my LEED Green Accreditation and become a Quality Certified Technician.
As soon as I graduated from CSU in December of 2013, I started a six-month internship with Fransen Pittman, with a plan to go back to CSU for my master’s degree in Business. Three months into my internship, I realized I would never be able to find a place like Fransen Pittman again. From all the great people that work here, to the awesome/quality work we do and the relationships we cultivate, I would be crazy to leave. So, I asked to be brought on as a full-time Project Engineer. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made.
Being a life-long Coloradan, I take full advantage of everything Colorado has to offer. In the wintertime, I spend my weekends downhill skiing, as well as uphill skiing. In the summertime, you will find my wife and me (and soon my new son, Austin) hiking 14ers, road biking, enjoying a Rockies game, disc golfing, exploring all the awesome breweries, and soaking in every minute of the amazing Colorado weather. With all of my family now relocating outside of Colorado, we also find ourselves traveling to a bunch of fun places, such as Arizona, Michigan, Montana, and Texas. When we aren’t on the go, we are enjoying our new home in Castle Rock, doing all the fun things that come with purchasing personalizing, and babyproofing a new home.
Native to Springfield, Ohio, I spent the better part of my life surrounded by corn fields. Although enticing to some, I didn’t quite share the same enthusiasm. With little to do, I found relief through the world of sports, both playing and spectating. Not ironically, these are still some of my passions today.
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Construction Management from Bowling Green State University in the Spring of 2012. Immediately following graduation, I moved to Denver, Colorado to start my career.
My career in construction began with a large municipal/industrial contractor where I worked as an Estimator and Field Engineer focusing on pipeline installations. Although this was great exposure for a recent graduate, I soon realized that I much preferred more vertical type construction, and so I sought employment with another Denver-based commercial general contractor. I worked with said company for nearly four years as a Project Engineer and Assistant Project Manager before ultimately making the decision to join the Fransen Pittman family. I couldn’t be happier with the change. To date, my accreditations include CPR and First Aid Certified, OSHA 30-Hour Certified, Stormwater Management Certified and I am also seeking LEED accreditation.
My favorite professional teams include the Ohio State Buckeyes (football), Cincinnati Bengals, Cincinnati Reds, and Cleveland Cavaliers. My more personal hobbies include attending music concerts, snowboarding, hiking, and playing basketball, volleyball and golf. I also enjoy spending time with friends, family, my wife, Julie, two sons, Owen and Emmett, and dog, Parker.
I grew up a Meloneer in Rocky Ford, Colorado. Most of my childhood was spent playing sports, being with family (immediate and extended) and helping my father with house projects. I am one of six siblings and there is still never a dull moment when we get together as a family.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a Construction Management degree. While I began my higher education in the Civil Engineering Department at CSU, my construction experience and a love for carpentry and building pulled me toward a transfer into the Construction Management program.
I have experience as a Construction Superintendent as well as a Project Manager, primarily in healthcare and K-12 facilities. I enjoy the opportunity to participate in the construction of facilities that will make a difference in the lives of communities and students for decades to come. I am also fascinated with the evolving systems and construction methods/products used in the building process, and strive to learn something new each day and with every new project/design.
I enjoy being outdoors-camping, hiking, disc golf, and boating with friends and family. I have two beautiful daughters that keep me very occupied when I’m not at work. With the addition of a puppy this year, and my daughters starting to participate in community sports activities (which I enjoy nothing more than watching them participate in), it seems that time for hobbies outside of our daily family craziness are hard to come by.
I was originally born in Wichita, KS but moved to Colorado when I was two and I have been here ever since, so I am about as close to native as you can get.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Construction Management. Through my time at FP, I have been able to continue my education and training by attaining certification in CQAT and Advanced Storm Water certification.
After finishing school, I started my career with an owner developer building apartment complexes. After a couple years building apartments, I decided that it was not the market I was interested in and I sought out a commercial contractor where I could get the project experience and variety I was looking for, and through a mutual connection, I was able to find a home at FP. Through my time at FP, I have been able to rise through the ranks from Project Engineer to Project Manager, while getting to work on projects in the majority of the market sectors we serve.
I enjoy playing golf, cycling, fly fishing, camping trips, and international travel.
I grew up in Jackson, Mississippi and from a young age, I had an interest in building. My father and I were always working on a project, whether it was building a shed, woodworking or just working on the house.
I attended Mississippi State University with a major in Building Construction Science and minors in both Real Estate Finance and Business Administration.
During college, I had multiple internships with a few different companies, and worked as a handy man at a farm during my summers. I interned at Fransen Pittman prior to my senior year at MSU and moved to Colorado where I first worked as a Project Engineer for FP in 2019.
I grew up playing soccer, and still play when I can. I love to ski and snowboard during the winters, and during the summers I love to fly fish and hike with my wife and our dogs.
