If you want to do good work, it’s best to do it with good people.
I was born and raised in rural southwest Pennsylvania. My mom was a nurse and my father was an Army officer. Since then, myself and 3 of my 5 siblings followed suit and joined the army. I was stationed in Tacoma, WA before separating in 2018 and attending college at CSU.
I earned a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University, and am also OSHA 10 and CPR certified.
I began my internship with Fransen Pittman at the beginning of 2022 which has since blossomed into full-time employment. I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity FP has given me to be a part of such a great company where I can grow through the experience and knowledge of all my co-workers.
Outside of the office, I enjoy getting out in nature with my dogs, working out, reading, or exploring new interests. Coaching wrestling also holds a place in my heart, I’m currently volunteering at a middle school when I can.
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 am originally from Pennsylvania, but my husband introduced me to Colorado in 2013 and I have been calling it home ever since.
I graduated from Colorado Technical University with an associate degree in Accounting in the beginning of 2020. In the future, I plan on going back to school to pursue a bachelor's degree.
In my spare time, I love being active outside. I particularly love backpacking with my two dogs, kayaking, and horseback riding. My lifelong goal is to someday have a horse of my own. I am thrilled to be a member of the FP team.
I was born and raised in Northern Colorado. I have a bachelor's degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University, and love this industry.
Previously, I spent 2 years at a residential GC and 2 years at a commercial GC. I enjoy working with people and numbers while tackling new problems each day.
I currently live in Windsor and enjoy anything outdoors, such as golfing, four wheeling, wake surfing, dirt biking, and racing jet skis. If I'm not at work, you can find me on the lake.
I am a transplant from the Florida Keys-specifically Tavernier, FL. In 2020, After 31 years of humidity and heat, I turned in my “Florida Resident" card for Denver, Colorado and I have thoroughly enjoyed being spoiled by the seasons and weather out here.
I am 2nd generation in construction; my father owned and ran a commercial metal framing and drywall company. During high school, I worked as a drywall finisher; however, I was unsure of what I “wanted to do with my life.” So, I decided to skip finishing my bachelor's and spent four years walking my way through South America, Central America, and most of the Caribbean. In 2015, I came back to construction to start from the ground up as a laborer, and over the years I worked through most field positions before moving into the office. I am currently finishing my bachelor’s degree in Business Intelligence at Metro State in Denver. It took a while to find a degree that I think enhances what I already love, and this program spoke to me, as it focuses on analyzing businesses from cost to practices. It plays right into Estimating/Preconstruction, which is my favorite part of construction.
I climbed the ranks of the hospitality industry for seven years, while drywall finishing on the side. Once I made it to Store Manager, I decided I wanted to do something different. I restarted my career as a laborer all the way through Senior Project Management for commercial metal framing and drywall after my traveling hiatus. I made a career change in 2019 to Zillow Offers because I saw an opportunity to expand into residential construction. During my time there, I served 13 markets from Minneapolis to Miami in teaching leaders and markets common construction practices. The pandemic ended my time as a full-time travel employee and without hesitation, I made the move to Colorado. When I was looking to continue my growth in construction, the general contracting side just made sense and so did FP’s people, culture, and the type of projects they build.
Walking in the woods, snowboarding, camping, reading, cooking, fine wine, gardening (avid green thumb), and any type of water sports.
A native Kansan, I was born and raised in Manhattan, Kansas and am a graduate of Kansas State University with a degree in Construction Science and Management.
Growing up with a passion to create and build, I got my hands dirty working as a commercial painter and carpenter while pursuing a career in construction management and supporting a young family. My eventful construction career has included building an NFL stadium, casino, churches, medical facilities, and schools. I was thrilled to have had the unique experience of building a new school for my eldest daughter to attend sixth grade, and I admit that she might have had a couple private tours of the school during construction.
I moved to Colorado from Kansas City and have no plans on leaving. Moving to Colorado was a natural fit for me as the great outdoors have always been part of my life, and I spend free time taking my wife and three daughters to the mountains to camp, ski, and hike. More recently my wife and I have focused on developing the interests of our young girls as they pursue environmental activism, graphic design, and fashion.
I’m a Colorado native and grew up working around the farm/house with my dad only to discover how much I love building. We always had Legos, Lincoln Logs and Erector Sets as kids and then it turned into car projects and construction projects we all did as a family. I love seeing things get built!
“School” never came easy to me, whether it was my short attention span or a goofy reading disability (that was diagnosed in college), I always struggled to maintain good grades. After years of bouncing around college, I found the Construction Management program at Colorado State University and for the first time, I started to get As and Bs-and it wasn’t in gym class! My overall GPA was barely enough to graduate, but I had succeeded and that has driven my passion to instruct at a college level and bypass the traditional regurgitated education process we’ve all been through. Go Rams!
I was lucky enough to work my way through college as a carpenter and/or plumber and that experience transitioned nicely into working for several companies through the years as a Site Manager, Superintendent and/or Project Manager where I gained over $500 million dollars in construction experience. In 2015, I decided to get my Class B general contracting license and was self-employed until late 2021, when I began working at Fransen Pittman in their preconstruction department. I now get to work with 2 incredible teams at FP-Estimating and Project Management.
My wife, Crista, and my son, Levi, are truly blessings in my life-hands down they make me a better person! We spend a lot of time working on house projects, hot rod projects and camping, along with all the fun things having a kid will bring. If I’m left alone for too long, you can find me building something out in the garage or teaching my son about construction or old cars.
I was born and raised in Denver, CO as 1 of 10 siblings. As a kid, I enjoyed spending time at the Horse Track with my father, which is where I began to love animals and the farm life. During high school, I would work with my father on remodels during summer breaks.
After graduating high school, I was hired by a local construction company as a laborer and was given the opportunity to start attending CITC to become a Journeyman Carpenter.
I started with Fransen Pittman as a Carpenter in 2003 and worked my way up to Foreman and then Superintendent in 2016, and am now a Senior Superintendent. In the 19 years I have been at Fransen Pittman, I have had the opportunity to work on many great projects, which have included churches, schools, and libraries. It is very rewarding to see the community enjoy these projects after completion.
I am married with four kids and keep busy with sports and 4-H projects. I also enjoy riding and training my horses.
My hometown and the place I hail from is Wilmore, Kentucky.
I graduated in 2015 with Media Communications degree from Asbury University.
In 2017, I moved to Colorado and started with FP as a Field Engineer, then I went on to become a Project Engineer.
I enjoy hiking, shooting bows and guns, woodworking, and playing music in my free time.
I was born in Anchorage, Alaska, but I only lived there for a short time. My parents moved our family from the Chicago area to Colorado in the '70s, so I consider Colorado my home. My two boys, born and raised in Colorado, still live here as does the rest of my immediate family.
I have been in construction pretty much my whole career. I have worked with Project Managers, Estimators/Pre-Construction, Marketing, and Accounting. I have a been a Project Coordinator with FP since 1999.
You can find me wherever there is sunshine and/pr water! Whether it's the Colorado mountains or Mexico. I love to read and hang out with friends and family.
I grew up in Panama City, Florida where I was always a short drive from the beach. I was introduced to Colorado on a ski trip when I was little, and I decided that one day I would trade the sand for snow.
When I began applying to colleges, Colorado was the first state on the list. I am a big Rams fan, so it was easy for me to pick Colorado State University, where I earned a bachelor's degree in Construction Management.
While enrolled at CSU, I completed two internships with commercial contractors. Through these experiences, I realized how fulfilling construction can be, seeing my own efforts come to fruition, as well as realizing the positive impact that a new building can have on a community. I am lucky to be a FP team member, where we strive to make an positive impact every day.
Since becoming a permanent Colorado resident, I have enjoyed snowboarding, hunting, hiking, and everything else that this state has to offer.
I was born in Dallas, TX and moved to Lakewood, Colorado in the late ‘80s after living in California and Tennessee for a short period of time. I graduated from high school in Colorado. During my HS and college years, I worked as a sheet metal installer and auto mechanic. Working with my hands is what lead me to a career in construction.
I earned a BS in Construction Management from Colorado State University.
I began my commercial construction career as a Project Engineer for a mid-sized general contractor in the Denver area working on a large hospital build out and renovation. I was then a Project Engineer in Dallas, TX. The company at that time was a mid-sized water/wastewater and pipeline contractor that self-performs the majority of their own work. After that, I was a Senior Construction Manager at AECOM, a large multinational firm, primarily focused on federal projects with the occasional commercial building project. I have been a Project Manager with Fransen Pittman since 2017, and have managed a wide range of projects in value and complexity since joining the team.
My time outside of work before marriage and children involved fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, and traveling. Today, I spend my time with my wife and son and working on my home.
I was born and raised in a small town outside of Kansas City, KS. After graduating high school, I traveled down south to attend the University of Arkansas, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Business. I got married soon after college to my high school sweetheart, and my wife and I decided to move out west to Denver.
I earned a degree in Business from the University of Arkansas and a Master’s in Construction Management from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
I started out my professional career at John’s Manville as an Account Manager. After graduating with my master’s degree, I started working with another GC in Denver for a short stint. I heard about FP through a friend of mine, who told me about a job opening. I was soon hired by FP and I haven’t looked back since!
I love being outdoors and spending time in the mountains, especially during September with an elk tag. I am an avid hunter and fisherman. I also really enjoy golfing, snowboarding, and spending time with my wife and friends.
Although not technically a Colorado native, I consider myself to be one because I have lived in our beautiful state since I was two years old; however, you can track my family heritage back to 1869 when they originally homesteaded in both Larkspur and Pine, Colorado (Fun fact: my ancestors used to own the rock in Castle Rock!).
I graduated from Metropolitan State University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in HR Management. I currently hold my Professional in Human Resources certification, which provides continuous opportunities to stay relevant on the latest HR trends, compliance, obligations, and more.
I fell into a career in construction by accident when my first employer (an earth retention subcontractor) found my resume posted online and offered me a job. I had zero construction industry experience; however, once I arrived, I realized that I could not see myself working in any other industry. After spending 10 years working for that company, I realized it was time to spread my wings and fly. In the fall of 2016, I gracefully landed at FP. I presently sit on the AGC Mental Health Taskforce as well as the Wellth Clinical Risk Committee to help ensure that employee wellness is a top priority at FP.
I have been involved in competitive dog sports, both professionally and as a hobby, since I was eight years old. When I am not showing or training dogs, you can find me outside on a hiking trail, on my bike, or in my garden. I have also recently learned that I enjoy fly fishing and skiing (I went skiing for the first time in my life at 36 years old!).
I started my construction journey during my summer breaks in high school being a laborer and craftsman for a commercial contractor in Memphis, Tennessee. Growing up being in construction taught me a lot about the industry and the people that make projects come together in the field. I have been hooked on building things ever since.
After working construction in high school, I went on to study Civil Engineering at Mississippi State University where I specialized in roadway and pavement design. Studying roadway and pavement design helped me reimagine construction from the ground up. I enjoyed my time at MSU and always try and get back for a couple of baseball games in the spring.
Interning for FP the summer of my junior year of college may have been one of the best career moves I could have made. As an intern, I was lucky enough to get to work on the Cherry Creek School District projects in the field under a great team. I learned more that summer then I could have ever imagined. That summer really did change the way I looked at construction, and all the moving parts it takes to complete a commercial construction project. Now, being full-time member of the FP team has really inspired me to push myself and pursue a career that inspires others to build things that truly matter like schools and churches.
The best part about living in Colorado are all the outdoor activities. When I'm not at work, I'm in the woods hunting for elk, deer, turkey, or I'm fly fishing in a river somewhere in this beautiful state.
As a Colorado native, I spent all of my youth in the Littleton area where I grew up to love hiking, camping, and dirt bike riding. For several years, I considered my second home to be wherever we could pitch a tent and hit the dirt bike trails.
I became part of the FP family in July 2003. With FP, I have a successful history with remodels on historic buildings, additions, and new, ground-up buildings, constructing them close to schedule and within budget. My experience includes a variety of project types and locations. From close to home where I completed the Leach Center for Performing Arts building at Colorado Academy, and Maddox ECE and Bishop Elementary for Englewood Schools, to a new library followed by the new Town Hall in Hudson, Colorado, and an addition to the elementary school is Strasburg. I attribute my success to the fact that I enjoy unique challenges associated with all of the projects I have been on. I take a lot of pride in my strong ability to “solve the puzzles” that naturally come with construction. My favorite project is the “next” one. I am always looking forward to building another lasting relationship of success and trust with a new client or reinforcing that relationship with a current client. I take my projects to heart and my focus is always on what will make my client proud to have me onboard.
In the fall and winter, I’m an avid Broncos fan, as well as a fan of all the teams my grandsons have played for in their youth leagues and throughout high school.
I am a Colorado native, and I grew up along the front range, except for a brief time in Texas. The last of my childhood years were spent in Loveland, CO where I graduated from Thompson Valley High School in 1977 “Go Eagles.” I quickly followed in my father and uncle’s footsteps to the construction industry. I remember being a young boy, going to work with my father and uncle, building homes up in the foothills. There’s something about being a part of a team and creating a place for shelter; rooms to sleep and a place to build memories.
I graduated from Construction Industry Training Council of Colorado (CITC), which is a four-year trade school, where I earned my Journeyman card.
My professional career has been spent with FP, since June of 1997- 25 years and going!
When I am not working, you will find me outdoors. I grew up boating, hunting, fishing, hiking, golfing, and ATVing. My favorite times are spent with my beautiful wife and three amazing kids, creating long lasting memories.
I was born and raised in Longmont, Colorado. Being the oldest of three brothers, there was always some form of adventure/activities occurring in our house. We have all gone our separate ways, but all still remain living in the Colorado foothills and we visit each other often. Blue collar work was emphasized, and often became competitive in our house, which set a good foundation for all of us.
I graduated with an A.A.S in Construction Management from AIMS Community College, Sko Varksss. Since then, I have obtained some certifications to further my education: OSHA-10, CPR, and CQAT. I plan on furthering my knowledge for construction as often as I can, and I am currently enrolled in the CITC Carpentry program and Stormwater classes.
Before attending college in 2019, I spent the first four years after graduating high school working in different fields of construction/landscaping/utilities gaining experience. The first semester into my education, I obtained an internship with FP. I spent the internship building the new Student Center at the college I attended (AIMS), which was a great and unique experience. Since then, I have been hired on as a Field/Project Engineer with FP, and I have been learning all of the ins and outs.
If I am not at work, you can probably find me at the gym, a local restaurant, or spending time with my fiancé and family. I enjoy all things hunting, fishing, boating, and camping. Most of my time spent at home consists of working on any of my ‘projects,’ comprised of home improvements/side businesses.
I was born and raised in Colorado, and spent most of my youth playing sports and exploring all that Colorado has to offer. My summers were spent camping, golfing, road tripping, and learning about the crazy world of construction.
I spent four great years in Fort Collins, where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Finance from Colorado State University.
I started working at FP five years ago as a Field Engineer, where I would spend my next four years working on projects in wonderful eastern Colorado. I started working on projects of my own as an Assistant Superintendent after my days out east, and I am currently an Estimator in the Windsor Office.
In the summer, I partake in camping, backpacking, anything to do with water, and projects around the house. In the winter, I try to get up to the mountains as often as possible to go snowboarding.
I was born and raised in Wesson, Mississippi. Growing up I spent most of my time in the woods with my Daddy, hanging out in my Pawpaw’s barn, or in the kitchen with my Momma. Dance consumed my life throughout my youth and into college. I was a competitive dancer for 14 years and ended my dance career as captain of the Redline dance team at Southwest Mississippi Community College.
I have a bachelor’s degree from Mississippi State University in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Environmental Engineering. In my studies, I was fascinated with stream and pond restorations; however, one summer I got an internship working on major FEMA infrastructure job on the coast where I was an inspector for the city, and I was onsite all day. I loved spending my days with the crews and working together to come up with solutions for any problems we ran into. After my internship, I knew I wanted to be in the field and work in the construction industry.
FP gave me the opportunity to work in the field and after graduating from MSU, I moved to Colorado. While working for FP I have gotten to work on some amazing projects with amazing team partners. I have gained experience in various positions, from the office to field, and I look forward to furthering my education and growing in this industry.
My favorite afternoons are turning on Conway Twitty and baking or cooking (frying chicken is my stress reliever). I love summer and hanging out beside any form of water (beach, river, lake, or pool).
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.
I grew up in the small town of Evansdale, Iowa with my parents and three brothers. We spent as much time as we could outdoors camping, fishing, canoeing, and doing the things we loved to do. When I was thirteen years old, I joined my parent’s country band and we played at weddings and local venues for about two years. I was also in a rock band with my oldest brother, which is partly why I moved to Colorado. All of the band members moved to CO for work and to expand the band’s experience. I followed in 1983, and I have been in Colorado since. I have three kids and four grandchildren that I spend as much time with as I can.
I came through the trades fresh out of high school and I have my general contractor's A Commercial License, 30 hour OSHA, CPR certification, Storm Water Certification, Fork Lift Certification, training in Microsoft Project, and experience using BluBeam.
I started my construction career as a concrete laborer and worked my way up to Foreman. I spent about 12 years doing concrete foundations. I then moved on to work for a general contractor as a Carpenter, and after three years, I moved up to Superintendent, and I have been in this role since. I've been on the Fransen Pittman team for over 20 years, and I have been fortunate to work on many amazing projects with so many wonderful people.
The hobby I have spent the most time enjoying is music. I started playing drums when I was ten years old, and I have been in many bands playing at venues in Iowa and Colorado up until 2021, when I decided to pause for a while. I have always liked to be in the outdoors; I enjoy camping, fishing, riding ATVs, sitting around the campfire playing guitars and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and I now have more free time to do so now that I chose to put music on hold for now.
I was born and raised in Colorado and enjoy family, classical design, great craftsmanship, faith, and a good conversation (with the appropriate beverage, of course).
Growing up in a construction family, I started going to work with my dad during the summers when I was 12. At heart, I am a builder, and I have worked in many areas of the construction industry over the years. I was Fransen Pittman’s first employee, hired as a Superintendent in 1994, and moved into an estimating role a few years later. The development of the construction industry, and the ever-changing role of the general contractor in commercial construction has necessitated a fresh and innovative development of estimating techniques and practices that are empowering owners, as well as design team members, to squeeze every drop of potential out of every project participated in. I am proud to have had a hand in developing all of FP’s preconstruction methods, techniques and tools, such as the Cost Modeling process, Estimate design and presentation, Tracking formats and philosophy. I run the Preconstruction Services Department and am blessed to have a large contingent of talented estimating professionals that are helping FP to reshape what defines preconstruction, and bringing efficient, thoughtful, cost effective, and ultimately tremendously valuable projects to fruition wherever possible.
My wife, Julie, and I are accustomed to having 35-50 people for Thanksgiving dinner, which seems like a lot, but 10 of those are our kids. That’s right, 10 kids and a growing number of grandkids! This means that things are always lively and seldom quiet.
I am a Colorado native and grew up in Thornton, CO.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. After that, I started my career in commercial construction and have been in the industry since 2009.
I am a Senior Estimator with FP and I have been here since 2017. My background is heavily focused in preconstruction, although I have worked as both a Project Manager and Superintendent. I have worked on projects throughout the United States valuing up to $80M, primarily being CM/GC work. I truly enjoy the preconstruction process, as well as the challenge of guiding a project successfully to meet both expectations and budget.
I enjoy spending most of my time outdoors with my family; we enjoy camping hiking and traveling.
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 raised in the beautiful town of Loveland, Colorado. Throughout my young years, I was deeply involved in youth hockey, where I learned the importance of teamwork, dedication, and competition. Northern Colorado is home to my fiancé and me, where we look to deepen our roots within the area for years to come.
I graduated from Colorado State University (Go Rams!) with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management. CSU taught me that the construction industry in Colorado truly is a community, and one that I am proud to be a part of.
I started working in the construction industry at the age of 14, where I was able to earn money helping my brother shingle houses in rural Nebraska. Throughout the years, I have held the titles of Laborer, Carpenter, Superintendent, and Field Engineer in both residential and commercial markets. Fransen Pittman is a wonderful team to be a part of, and I look forward to building more communities with them.
I am blessed to live in this great state, where hobbies are plentiful, regardless of the season. I enjoy hunting, fly fishing, water sports, and pond hockey.
I was born in Montana and moved to Tucson during my sophomore year of High School. In 1978, I moved to Denver with the intention of completing my degree in Architectural Engineering. In 1981, I married my wife Donna and eventually had our two boys, Travis and Clayton.
I attended Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona studying an array of subjects from data processing, science and math, and finally architecture. I attended CU Boulder for a year and returned to work in the consulting engineering industry and became a project manager for several firms.
My career started with McFall, Konkel and Kimball where I worked as a draftsman and worked my way up to Senior Designer. I then worked for Abeyta Engineering Consultants, and it was there that I worked on some of the preliminary site studies for the future Denver International Airport, which replaced Stapleton Airport. My next stint was in Greeley, CO where I worked for AE Associates. After Greeley, I moved back to Montana for a 3-year stint with MKK in Billings, which was fairly uneventful. I moved my family back to the Denver area to work with The RMH Group, then worked for Mazzetti and Moen Engineering before coming to work for FP. While at Mazetti, I designed the Hover project which was also constructed by FP. It is indeed a small world. I have had the privilege of being involved in some very interesting projects over the last 44 years. During my time, I worked under the tutelage of some incredible engineers and have learned a lot both in the office and in the field.
My family loves to go camping, hiking and my wife loves to fish. I play racquetball, golf and dabble in woodworking.
I moved to Colorado to attend CSU after living in Los Angeles my whole life.
I was always really curious about construction and how buildings all come together, so I packed my bags one day and moved to Fort Collins to study Construction Management. During my time there, I volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, studied sustainable construction in Costa Rica, and competed in the ASC Student Competition. I graduated with Bachelor's in Construction Management and interned with FP for 6 months before moving back to California. I couldn't stay away for too long, though.
I currently live in Evans, CO and am working up north in the Windsor Office. In my free time, I like to play soccer and tennis, try new foods, go hiking, and explore Colorado.
I was born and raised in the high desert of Southern California and lived there until I was 18. I went to Lancaster High School where I played club and school volleyball, then moved to Colorado after I graduated in 2019.
Joining the FP team marked the start of my professional career. The majority of my family is in construction and, in a way, they all inspired me to be a part of something bigger.
I love to read, but I also enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, and paddle boarding.
I was born and raised in Colorado and spent most of my free time enjoying the outdoors. When I wasn’t involved in team sports, you could find me hunting, fishing, skiing, downhill mountain biking, and climbing. I have always liked working with my hands and spent a lot of time woodworking and tinkering on my cars and trucks.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management.
I began my construction career as a Carpenter installing hardwood floors in residential construction, and this eventually expanded into various forms of trim carpentry. After getting proficient in those skills, I decided to expand my knowledge further and started working as a Carpenter for a custom home builder. I spent a number of years doing this before joining Fransen Pittman. Working for FP has challenged me to expand my knowledge further. I've combined my skills as a builder with newfound management skills that I did not previously have.
I spend most of my free time hunting, fishing, weightlifting, and working on my never-ending list of projects. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and spend a lot of time on the water boating during the summer months.
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 born and raised in a small town in Utah. After my wife and I got married, we moved to an even smaller town to start our lives together. After spending the first 12 years of my constriction career in Utah, we moved to Colorado.
After graduating from high school, I went to firefighter school where I earned my Fire I/Fire II certifications as well as my EMT B certification. All the while I was working full time in construction, building houses. Throughout my career in construction, I have maintained my certifications in First Aid, CPR, and AED. I have also kept up on my equipment operator certifications, taken advanced course for Stormwater Management, as well as the CQAT program.
I started in the construction world when I was 18 years old as a grunt, sweeping floors and hauling trash. I would always look for ways to move up to the next level. I have worked as a flooring contractor, wood framer, carpenter, and glazer; working my way up to Superintendent where I continue to grow. Throughout my 22 years in construction, I have always been able to be a part of many fun and challenging projects. I have worked on many churches, schools, retail buildings, and hospitals.
I am one of many woodworkers in my family. I have always had a passion for it ever since I was little. I have taken that knowledge and built many items in my home that we still use today. I have recently upgraded to a shop with a CNC router, which has allowed me to get into a whole other realm of woodworking.
I was born in Garden City, KS, but was raised in Colorado since I was seven years old. This is home to me.
I have been working with Fransen Pittman as a Project Coordinator since October of 2017.
I am a mother of three boys who are my pride and joy. While only two are still at home, I make the time to see my eldest as often as I can. The majority of my time is spent at soccer games, wrestling matches, and hosting family dinners three times a week. Family is everything to me. I also enjoy baking, cooking and crafting.
I was born and raised in Central Pennsylvania, best known for Hershey Chocolate and rolling Amish farmland. Drawn to adventure and skiing after college, I moved to the great Rocky Mountains and called Denver home for 15 years. After meeting my wife and having 2 children in Colorado, we decided to make an exciting move to the South and established ourselves in Grapevine, Texas.
I graduated from Pennsylvania College, part of Penn State University with an undergraduate degree in Construction.
My career and passion for construction started with working as a Carpenter during my college summers. After college graduation, I continued my career path as a Superintendent for commercial office projects, primarily in downtown Denver. Throughout my time working in the field, I was always fascinated with how the project was set up by the roles and responsibilities of the preconstruction team. This was the driving factor for my move into estimating and the Preconstruction Manager role. Over the past year I accepted an opportunity to be a part of a two-person team in opening an office for Fransen Pittman in the Texas DFW region. What I enjoy most in my career are the relationships that are made on a project and carried through for many projects to come.
I have two domestic hobbies: cooking for my family/friends and fixing/modifying my kids’ toys. I also love being outdoors; running, biking, snowboarding, and I am always trying to figure out the great game of golf!
I am a Colorado native and was born in Boulder, CO. I grew up in Parker, CO.
I earned an associate degree in Culinary Management form The Art Institute of Colorado and also have a bachelor's degree in Business Management form Colorado State University. In high school and throughout college, I would spend my breaks working in the field wherever I was needed: painting, clearing debris, tying rebar, packing grout, maintaining stormwater, and surveying. Many of my on-site mentors throughout adolescence are still FP team members today. Shout-out to Tony Ortiz, Bernardo Chavez, Chris Hughes, and CJ Campbell!
I started my career as a professional chef creating menu items and managing product for Comedy Works and Yard House. Cooking soon became more of a hobby, as I desired a career/pathway where I could make an impact. This motivation brought me to FP, where I have spent time in the field, estimating, and now, project management.
I love the outdoors, snowboarding, and going up to our family cabin. Becoming a dad has changed some of our activities and frequencies- all for the better. I'm also a big fan of video games. When I have a little down time, I like to immerse myself into a FPS game. I still have a passion for cooking and creating dishes that bring people together for good food, drinks, and laughs. Follow me @keepcalmchiveonco for all my quintessential recipes.
I grew up in a small town in central Texas but moved to Colorado in the summer of 2016 with my husband and three kids to be closer to family.
I graduated from Texas Tech in 2003 with degrees in General Business and Marketing.
I love being part of the FP family. I enjoy contributing to amazing projects that benefit communities across Colorado. FP has a great atmosphere and group of individuals that really make you feel like you are home.
I enjoy spending time with my family, whether it includes watching my kids play baseball or involves hiking and being outdoors.
Originally from New York, I grew up in the Hudson Valley. My family and I enjoyed summers at the beach and skiing in the winter months. After a few ski vacations, we eventually all moved out to Colorado, where I met my husband. My husband is also from the east coast, but we have made Colorado our home, raising our children here in Douglas County.
With over 20 years in of construction experience, I have been the Office Manager for Fransen Pittman since 2004. I am also the IT Director, responsible for managing the IT department, the Project Coordinator team, and our buildings.
I am passionate about traveling, and I love to learn about other cultures. I also like to ski, read, ride my bike, watch my son play soccer, and spend time with my family.
I was born and raised in Wisconsin, where I grew up mostly in a small town. I have a huge family and growing up close-knit was awesome.
I went from a Journeyman carpenter to Foreman, and then moved up to Superintendent. I hold welding certificates, OSHA 30, NFPA 700-E, and am stormwater certified. My training is always ongoing in terms of quality assurance and various other courses.
I started working as a Carpenter Apprentice, framing houses right out of high school. After a few years, I bought out my boss and was on my own until the early 2000s, when the housing market fell apart. I moved into the Carpenter Foreman role for a commercial company until my family moved here in 2009. I started working as an Assistant Superintendent in 2010, and I have loved doing it since. I had an opportunity to join the FP team in late 2017, and I jumped on it.
My family loves to be in the mountains during the winter and at the lake in the summer. My son and I like to deer hunt. When we get the chance, we also like to travel and visit our family scattered around the country.
I grew up in the suburbs of Colorado with my parents, older sister, two cats, and green tree frog, Elvis.
I graduated CU Boulder with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and an affinity for the Flatirons. Working at Fransen Pittman keeps my pen sharp and allows for exploration of new passions, like graphic design.
A series of summer internships led me to Fransen Pittman after college graduation. I’ve grown roots and stayed ever since!
Skiing, attending live shows, and trying to get on a first name basis at the taco place up my street.
I grew up in Englewood, CO and am a fourth generation Coloradan. I love construction. Both of my grandfathers, my dad, and four of my uncles were in construction. I remember working with my dad and brothers as a boy and learning valuable skills beginning with building tree houses, forts, and anything else we could make with nails, saws, hammers, and boards. I also grew up very active in sports, student organizations, and being an outdoorsman.
I earned a BS Degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University.
I began my career in civil construction after graduating from college. At that time, there was an economic recession and jobs were very hard to come by. I knew that I ultimately wanted to be in building construction. A few years later, I had the opportunity to move back to the Denver area with a building contractor and never looked back. As my career developed, I worked in estimating, project management, business development, and am now V.P. of Operations. Building is in my blood and I’m so thankful to be doing what I am passionate about. Most of all, I love building relationships with those that I work with and work for! Nothing better than building friends and buildings at the same time.
My primary hobbies outside of work are bicycling and skiing. My business partner, John Pittman, and I are now embarking on another cross-country bicycle tour after having finished the Atlantic to Pacific ride a few years ago. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Bobbie, and we have one daughter who is married and is also a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
I was born in Denver and have lived in Colorado my whole life, with Bennett being my current home. I have nine brothers and sisters in my family, as well as 14 nieces and nephews. My whole life I have been a Traditional Roman Catholic, and the Catholic faith is the center of everything I do. Since 2008, I have worked a week of my summer for a Convent of Franciscan Sisters in Kansas City with a group of men and boys from our church-the highlight of all my summers. In May of 2020, I married Catherine, who I met while in college in St Mary’s, Kansas. We have one boy named Steven who was born in May of 2021, and we hope to see many more!
After high school graduation in June of 2015, I entered a Saint Thomas Aquinas Seminary and was there for five months. After leaving the Seminary in March, I enrolled in St. Mary’s College in St. Mary’s, Kansas, and graduated with an associate's degree in Liberal Arts at the end of May 2018.
I have been at Fransen Pittman since 2018, and look forward to continual growth in the understanding of preconstruction and construction.
I love to camp and hike in the mountains-sun, rain, and snow. Our church has a Scout Group and I help to teach boys basic skills and techniques, as well as helping them to grow as strong Catholic young men. I also enjoy playing sports, especially football and volleyball. Some of my favorite studies are the Latin language as well as Music, History, and the works of JRR Tolkien.
I grew up in Hammond, Louisiana, a small college town. As a boy, I spent countless days on my bicycle exploring the Louisiana countryside. Each August my family would pack up our camping gear and drive to Colorado to spend a couple of weeks at the foot of the Maroon Bells. The cool, crisp mountain air was addictive, and I suppose this is where I developed my love for Colorado.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in Economics, and then enrolled in the University of Oklahoma, where I earned my master’s degree in Civil Engineering.
I began my career with Robert E McKee Construction. After five years with McKee, I moved to Calcon Constructors. After working twelve years in the Denver construction market, I started Fransen Pittman Construction Company with Von Fransen. Nurturing a small startup company into one of Colorado’s leading construction companies alongside the entire FP team has been one of the most rewarding parts of my life.
I love building things, so no surprise that I love woodworking in my shop. I also enjoy bicycle touring, climbing 14ers, and flying.
I was blessed to grow up in Maryland with eight siblings on land surrounded by woods. I loved doing anything outdoors with my family; my brother and I especially loved projects around the house or building things with my dad. We would visit relatives in Colorado every summer, and finally we moved to Parker, CO in 2000.
I was mentored by and worked for a builder from the age of 13 through high school on homes and additions. After graduation, I attended Colorado State University for Construction Management for two years, then chased my dream to serve our country as a combat medic in the US Army. Through two deployments in 2004 and 2006 to Afghanistan and Iraq, I really enjoyed the camaraderie and leadership skills I developed on active duty as a Sergeant. Today, I attribute much of my style in running projects to learning to “lead from the front,” in setting an example and standards for my crew and every subcontractor onsite.
In 2008, I returned to my love of building, starting at Fransen Pittman as a Carpenter, and working my way up to Foreman and Superintendent in 2014. I have since been able to run larger projects and mentor others as a Senior Superintendent. I truly love what I do, building amazing projects for our communities right here in Colorado. It’s so rewarding to work with a team in the field to produce projects that exceed our client’s expectations, and that we are proud of.
I am married with four kids! We love camping and raising 4-H animals, and I spend my "free time" outdoors hunting and fishing.
I’m a proud Colorado native who grew up in the beautiful town of Colorado Springs. Since I can remember, my dad has worked in the residential construction industry and since then, I’ve always had an idea that construction would be a part of my career path.
I graduated in the winter of 2018 from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management. It was from this program that I was introduced to FP, and I was fortunate enough to be given a six-month internship opportunity with the company.
I was hired on as a Project Engineer by Fransen Pittman in January 2019. Since then, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed learning more about construction and how things are built. I love seeing the end product of whatever building it is that we construct. Whether we’re building a school, church, or library, being able to see how our buildings impact the community around them is the best part of construction. I hope to continue to pursue my career as either a Project Manager or Superintendent; however, only time will tell, as my interests in the different operations of construction are subject to change the more I learn.
When I’m not at the office, I find great joy in lifting weights and staying active. I also love being in the mountains, and this shows through my love for hunting and snowboarding. Other than that, I am a huge fan of serving at my local church and being plugged into a faith-based community.
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 was born and raised in Colorado. I grew up camping, fishing, and playing sports with my older brother. I have always had a love for construction, building and understanding how things work. My family tells me stories about how I used to take everything apart just to rebuild it, and how I used to sneak into construction sites to climb on the equipment.
I graduated Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management from Eastern Washington University. I spent most of my time playing sports, working, and studying. I played hockey and baseball for the university, and I helped pay my way through school by working as many hours as I could as a framer. I strive to continue to grow as a professional. I take most opportunities to participate in numerous training courses FP offers.
I started my career in Seattle, working for a high-rise builder. I quickly realized that I wanted to be back in Colorado closer to family and friends. I worked in multi-family for 3.5 years, but I didn’t enjoy that type of building. When I came to FP, I was drawn in by the meaningful projects we construct, our approach, and the way everyone in the process is treated/valued. We build quality projects that have a direct impact on the communities in which we build. It’s very rewarding to be able to positively contribute to the communities we work in, and build lasting relationships along the way.
My wife tells me that I have too many hobbies! I really enjoy spending time with my family (Wife-Tori, son-Ty, Dog-Wrigley). When we aren’t exploring the outdoors and local attractions, I spend my time riding motocross, playing hockey, golfing, and snowboarding in the winters.
I am originally from Southern California but moved to Colorado from Las Vegas, NV.
I have been with Fransen Pittman since 2015 as a Project Coordinator.
I have a beautiful daughter, son, and husband. I love to bake and spend time with my family.
I was born and raised in Pueblo, CO. Although it was during the downturn of the steel industry, it was a character-building time for me; it was where my work ethic was born and flourished.
I was an avid reader/writer and worked in a bookstore during high school, and during my senior year I was the editor of my high school paper. I was just sure that I wanted to be a reporter, so off to school (University of Southern Colorado) to major in Mass Communications. I needed to pay rent, so I took a job with my brothers to do the payroll for their masonry/drywall/framing business. The rest, they say, is history, and I have been in construction ever since.
While the majority of my career was in AP & Payroll (which I loved), the last few years I have had the good fortune to be more involved in the accounting side of construction.
I am in the early stages of empty nesting, so I am excited to have the time to reacquaint myself with the things I loved doing already (traveling with my sons), while finding new things to do to fill in the extra time on my hands.
I was born in Kansas City, MO but moved to Parker, CO early on. As a kid, much of my time was spent with my parents and younger sister. We were always active in sports and touring the many wonders of Colorado.
I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder (Go Buffs!) where I earned a Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences degree. Later, I earned a master’s degree in Elementary Curriculum and Instruction.
The beginning of my professional career was spent in elementary schools as a speech/language pathology assistant and a third grade teacher. I jump at the chance to be creative, so the opportunity to join FP's marketing team was a dream realized.
When I'm not chasing my toddler son, I enjoy reading, attending live shows, or checking out breweries around town with my husband, family, and friends.
In my early childhood years, I was fortunate to be raised on a farm and ranch located in Eastern Colorado. I started out helping my family with their operation when I was 5 years old driving vehicles and pieces of farm machinery to help out when needed. Being raised with these surroundings taught me a lot about work ethic and how to be organized with my time to make sure everything was completed in a timely manner. During my high school years, I had various jobs around my community including construction, farming, and helping with maintenance at our county fairgrounds.
During my Senior year of High School, I became fascinated with structural and civil engineering. After high school graduation, I decided to make to journey up west to Colorado State University where I majored in Construction Management. It was during this time that I decided to go into the commercial side of construction because of all the different aspects that go into a project. During my last year in college, I was fortunate to have an internship with a smaller General Contractor where I got to learn all aspects of the Commercial Construction Industry.
After graduating from CSU, I started working for AMA Construction in Denver as a Commercial Construction Superintendent. I spent the first few years of my career working on bank remodels and tenant finish projects until 2009, when I had the opportunity to do my first ground up bank project. In 2013 I joined Fransen Pittman. Since then, I have been part of various projects including: K-12 Education, Higher Education, Libraries, Office Buildings, Senior Living, and Worship facilities. As a Superintendent I enjoy communication, problem solving, organization, and scheduling.
I am married with two kids. When I'm not busy watching my kids play sports, I enjoy working on my farm, working on equipment in my shop, and hanging out with my friends.
I was born and raised in Kansas and yes, there is no place like home. Although, I ended up taking a wrong turn on the yellow brick road and ended up in Colorado in 2017, then found my way to FP in April of 2019.
I graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Science and Management. This was a great space for me to peak my curiosity in many of the different trades and learn about building science, along with construction means and methods. I found it to be an incredible curriculum to set a student up for the beginning of a career in a fast-paced industry.
During my years in school, I had quite a few different opportunities in the industry to be a General Laborer, Project Engineer Intern, Field Engineer Intern, and get a taste of what it looks like to be an Owner’s Rep during an internship. Upon graduation, I took a job with a general contractor in Denver and was thrown on some high-profile projects within the metro area. After a quick couple of years and burnout starting to set in, I was introduced to FP and the rest is history!
I love the outdoors. My wife and I take any excuse to put off our house chores or projects to go play. Often, I am found fishing, hunting, camping, mountain biking, snowshoeing, skiing, or just enjoying the day in the park.
Growing up in rural Kansas with seven brothers and a large extended family, my goal was to escape the flatlands. After traveling, working, and living in Montana, Alaska, Hawaii, and California, I made a home in Evergreen, Colorado in 2015, and with my beautiful wife, wonderful daughter, and hardworking son, we are enjoying our new life in CO.
I have extended training/certifications in crane management, site safety, site management, stormwater, and quality.
I have worked in the construction field for more than 30 years in every aspect, from remodeling Yellowstone Lodge in the 80s to custom home construction in Alaska and Hawaii, and commercial construction in Alaska, California, and Colorado. As a Senior Superintendent, my projects have ranged in scope from $500K to $140M. I joined the FP team in 2017 because their culture of work excellence and commitment to a team spirit aligned with my professional and personal goals.
The outdoors are my passion-with hunting, fishing, and mountain biking being my activities of choice.
I grew up on an almond farm in Central California where I quickly learned how hard it is to make a buck and to respect people who work with their hands in the elements. I opened a savings account at Bank of America; they gave me a passbook to record interest earned on the money I saved from my paychecks. I loved writing the increase in my account because it was so much easier than spending day after summer day in 100-degree heart working in the field. In high school, I started lending money to classmates at usurious rates so they could buy candy which came with more valuable lessons.
While freezing my tail off at Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I studied fishing for steelhead trout and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. Soon thereafter, I moved to Colorado, and passed the exam to be a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and was one of the first people to become a Certified Construction Industry Finance Professional (CCIFP).
Since moving to Colorado, I have managed the accounting, risk and finances for different companies in several industries while primarily focusing on construction. FP gave me the opportunity to serve its people in 2015 and I am grateful.
My time away from work is spent outside as much as possible by hiking, biking, skiing, and golfing. My favorite is competing with my son in catching fish on a fly.
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.
I grew up in Los Angeles near Magic Mountain. My parents dropped us off sometimes for an all-day adventure and would pick us up at night. We had some great summer days there, it was cheap and safer back then. I was a visitor of Colorado (Breckenridge) starting in 1993, and moved out here in 2006 with a church plant.
I graduated high school in 1984, went to college for Art and Broadcasting. I fell into construction right after I got married in 1995, and became a wood framer, steel stud framer, and started a business with my buddy as a plumber for 2 years. I am a multi-tradesman and owned my own construction business for around 14 years before coming to FP. I am an avid drywall hanger and finisher, I do tile, painting, build and install cabinets, rough and finish carpentry, fencing, and concrete.
I worked in the Hollywood Studios as a Grip (we built and created backdrops for movies). I worked on TV shows like Coach, Sabrina the Teenage Witch as well as movies like Volcano, Alien 2, Mrs. Santa Clause, and others. I worked on large tilt-ups in Los Angeles and high-rise interiors in Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and West Los Angeles. My education helped me prepare for my Superintendent role. The best way to manage your subs is to know their job. I have done their job, while leading by encouragement. I will back them up like family. You are only as good as your team.
I build stuff at home, like my outdoor kitchen, patio cover, and decks. I’ve remodeled every inch of my home. I am an artist/cartoonist and I do over 71 impressions. Some of my favorites are Larry the Cable Guy, Rodney Dangerfield, many Disney characters and a number of Warner Brothers cartoon characters. I like to make people laugh.
Born and raised on the West Coast, I am #4 of 6 kids, so during my early life there was never a dull moment. My grandfather was a firefighter/contractor, and my father was a pre-YouTube DIYer. We were constantly taking on little projects and I was always there to help.
Knowing that my career goals were always in construction, I started taking ROP Construction courses in High School with a focus on plumbing, per my instructor’s direction. After high school, I went straight into the trades as a plumber and then a carpenter. A short while later, I started my college education while working full time, and I received my associate degree in Construction Technology in 2009. While in college, I completed the Skills USA Competition and won 1st place in the Teams Works (Small Building) Competition with a team of four, and I received 1st place in the Carpentry Competition the following year by myself.
I started my professional career in the trades in 2004 and worked myself into a management position in 2008 as a Foreman, and later as a Superintendent in 2010. Since then, I have managed projects of all shapes and sizes and in many industries, including retail, healthcare, and education.
When I am not working, I usually can be found helping my wife chase around our four kids. When I manage a free minute, I can be found riding my MTB, fishing, or doing anything sports related.
I grew up in Roselle, IL, which is about 30 minutes northwest of Chicago. My mother, Irena, and father, Zdzislaw, emigrated to the US from Poland, so I am the first generation born in the United States. I have three older siblings; my sister and brother still live in the Chicagoland area, and my oldest sister lives in Krakow, PL. My father owned and operated a residential construction company for 30+ years, which is how I developed my passion for this industry. I speak Polish fluently and have studied both Spanish and Chinese.
I graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Building Construction Management with a specialization in Healthcare Construction. I also wrestled my freshman year as a 197lb student-athlete. After that, I transitioned to Amateur Strongman Competitions for the next several years. I even had the pleasure to train with 4-time World’s Strongest Man, Brian Shaw.
Immediately after college, I moved out to Colorado and started working with GE Johnson Construction company for approximately nine years before transitioning to FP. I have had the privilege to build two hospitals and a 20-story high rise downtown.
I live my life by the saying, “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” This lifestyle has carried me through many different adventures, passions, and friendships. From scuba diving to sky diving, I rarely shy away from an opportunity to try something new. Nowadays, you’ll most likely find me spending my weekends shooting competitively or playing serious amounts of video games.
I grew up in Boulder County, Colorado on a small acreage where my father owned his own general contracting company, and my mother took care of the daily life around the home. I grew up with two brothers, where we spent most of our youth outdoors doing farm/yard chores, working on cars, and fishing, all while having fun and trying to stay out of trouble.
While working construction for my father, I graduated from Front Range Community College in 1997 with an associate degree in Construction Management, then shortly after I finished my bachelor's from Oklahoma State online in the studies of Geothermal and Renewable Energy. Since 2004, I have worked solely in the commercial field of construction, and I have had the pleasure to be working with FP since 2017. I have done countless hours of training classes over the years in different fields of construction work for the field and office side.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work on various projects related to renewable energy, schools, water parks, recreation centers, and the department of defense. I have always had a love for the challenges in building something new and learning how to build better projects for the future. That is why I have come to work at FP, the knowledge I have and the opportunity to work on various projects with a great support team.
I love to travel, but most of all, I love to be outdoors. I have a passion for fishing and boating, just being on the water with family and friends brings me joy. Even on the days when the fish are not biting. I just love being outside and enjoying nature.
I grew up in a coal mining community in West Yorkshire, England just as the industry was in decline. Outside the mining towns, the countryside is idyllic with farmlands all around. When we weren’t playing football (soccer), we were making rope swings, camping, and riding dirt bikes.
After graduating high school with a CSE in 1983 at 15-years-old, I worked as a painter’s laborer and attended trade school for painting and decorating for my father’s company before starting with the local builder, where I attended trade schools for texturing, plastering, stonemason, bricklaying, and drain laying. Eventually during the mid-90s, I passed all Site Management certifications required for commercial construction. I emigrated to the US in the early 2000s and attended CSU for Construction Management.
I worked my way up through the trades until becoming a Site Manager with a large commercial construction company in the UK in the mid 90s. I was part of a team on various projects from high rise city center office spaces to MOD installations, shopping centers, and schools. After emigrating to the US, I worked a number of years for a custom home builder as a Warranty manager and Project Manager before returning to the UK for five years. During this time, I fell back into my role as Site Manager on a variety of projects from schools and libraries, to power stations and flu vaccine facilities. On my return to the US, I decided that I wanted to stay with the commercial sector, so I found Fransen Pittman, and I haven’t looked back.
I like to do anything outdoors; golfing, biking, hiking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling.
I grew up in El Paso, Texas. After graduating high school, I travelled to multiple countries doing Christian ministry in Eastern Europe and East Asia. In 2017, I moved to Colorado, the home state of my parents and of much of my extended family. In 2020 I married my former next-door neighbor, childhood friend, and fellow El Pasoan, Samantha. We live in Parker with our son, Timothy.
I graduated from Baylor University in 2015 with a BA in History.
I started with Fransen Pittman in May of 2017 as an intern, and have worked in the field ever since. The projects I've worked on range from Denver to Eastern Colorado. I have certifications in OSHA 30, and Advanced Stormwater Management, and I am currently in the CITC apprenticeship program.
In my free time, I love to play board games and computer games. I am a fanatic about college football and all things Baylor. I have seen games at 11 different stadiums and counting, but none compare to beautiful Waco, Texas and Mclane Stadium! Sic 'em Bears!
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 in Fort Lupton, Colorado on a family farm. We raised numerous types of livestock over the years and grew corn, small grains, and hay. I also raised some vegetables when I got older that I could sell at the Farmers Market. The farm life gave me a sense of adventure and optimism that has stuck with me. Growing up, I was in 4-H and in high school I was a part of FFA chapter. I held several different offices in both organizations.
Upon graduation from Fort Lupton High School, I continued my education at Northeastern Jr. College in Sterling, CO. After a year of prerequisites, I transferred to Colorado State University and declared my major in Construction Management and graduated in 2008.
I worked my way to a Superintendent position in the water treatment industry. I joined FP in 2014 and I am now a part of the Senior Superintendent group at FP.
I married my college sweetheart, and we have five boys. Life has come full circle to live back at the family farm where we raise some hay and beef steers as a hobby. When I am not farming with my boys, we enjoy hunting and fishing.
I grew up in the middle east, married my best friend, and soon we were blessed with two wonderful kiddos, who own my heart. After a long journey, we moved to the USA in 2012, then to Colorado in 2014.
I graduated in 2009 from the middle east with a Bachelor of Construction Engineering. When my family and I came to the United States, I had to learn English first then go back to school. I earned a Construction Management certificate from CSU, and Architectural drafting from FRCC. In 2020, I started Construction Site Management with AIMS CC and graduated in December 2021. I started as an intern with FP in Summer 2021 and was hired on full-time that August.
FP is the best of the best; I’m planning on spending the rest of my career here. I enjoy challenges and look forward to opportunities where I will be able to assume more responsibilities. Ultimately, I’d like to keep moving forward and focus on strategy and development and work my way into a long-term position where I can build a solid career and help FP to get bigger and bigger with more successful projects.
I spend a lot of time playing sports with my family and neighbors. Soccer is my life; I like even the bad moments. I watch it and play 2-3 times a week. I enjoy being surrounded by people and working as one team for the win, that’s why I like my job; being outside working with people and to be a part of the team to complete another successful project.
I grew up in Wyoming where I lived the cowboy lifestyle but with a rebellious personality; I knew I was meant to see the world and find my own way of life. I moved to Colorful Colorado in the summer of 2020 after graduating college, and I began working for FP in 2021.
I graduated with a double bachelor’s degree in Communications and Art from the University of Wyoming (Go Pokes!) where I combined my love for writing and creation. While I typically used my time in the art studio painting with oils and throwing clay on the wheel, my artistic interest gave me an edge in my communications classes through graphic design to create visually appealing forms of media.
Although FP is the start to my marketing career, I have had an interest in building, and how components fit together, for many years. While living in Wyoming, I worked at auto body and mechanic shops as an apprentice, where I developed a curiosity for craft and design. Because I understand the appeal to using your hands to build and create, I was able to combine my Communications and Art degrees, and my interest in building and mechanics, into one job at FP.
I come alive when the sun is out; I like to paint, eat, travel, learn more about auto body and mechanics, and any outdoor activities, especially paddle boarding, BBQing, boating, and camping.
I was born in the suburbs of Chicago (Go Cubs!) and spent half of my childhood in Illinois. In the summer of 1999, my parents decided to sell our house and move us to Fort Collins, Colorado to be closer to family. After graduating from Rocky Mountain High School, I stayed in Fort Collins and attended Colorado State University.
I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Colorado State University Global Campus in 2015. After a couple years off, I started my MBA with Southern New Hampshire University and graduated with my master’s degree in 2019.
Having tried many different industries such as Healthcare, Education, and Finance, I finally found my place working in Construction for a large aggregates, concrete, and asphalt paving subcontractor. After nearly five years, I knew I wanted to work for a general contractor. I worked as a Project Manager for two GCs in the Northern Colorado area before finally starting with Fransen Pittman in March of 2022.
I live in Fort Collins with my boyfriend Zech (who is a Superintendent for FP!), his kids Harlee and Giovanni, and our two dogs Oscar and Lola. We love spending all the time we can outside, whether it’s going to the park, swimming, or playing catch with the kids. We also enjoy cooking together, playing cards, golfing, and going to sporting events like the Colorado Eagles and the Colorado Rockies.
I was born and raised in the great state of Texas. Growing up in Dallas and spending a lot of time on the lake in east Texas, it came natural to me that I enjoyed being outside more than busy life in the city. Life was filled with adventures to the lake, my buddy’s ranches, and a lot of golf. Soon after college, my wife, Sterling, and I decided to make the move to Denver and call Colorado home.
I had the honor to graduate from the greatest university, Texas A&M, with a BS in Construction Science and a minor in Business. During my time in College Station, I earned my OSHA-30 certification, along with several leadership accreditations through on-campus involvement. Gig ‘Em Ags!
I have loved the idea of working construction ever since I was a little kid, being able to see an idea on paper come out of the ground has always piqued my interest. I was able go right to work after graduation in the K-12 construction industry in the booming North Dallas area. Construction for me has always been about the impact the built environment is going to have on the communities, and the daily occupant of the jobs I have been honored to work on! Still fresh into construction industry, I am always eager to learn more and see construction advance with time!
In my free time, I love to snow ski and play a lot of golf – whenever and wherever (now being in Denver I miss the year-round golf season)! I also enjoy biking, trying new foods with my wife, and getting to spend quality time with our friends. I have had a great time trying hobbies here in Colorado, so I don’t think I will exhaust my options anytime soon!
I grew up in a small town in Iowa near the Mississippi river. We were on the river all the time. Water skiing, swimming, fishing, camping. Whatever you can do on the river, summer or winter, we did it. I met my wife in that small town and later we chased work to Colorado and never looked back.
I tell everyone I went to the school of hard knocks. I'm OSHA 30 and CQAT Certified.
I moved to Colorado in 1981 and went to work on Strontia Springs Dam in Waterton Canyon. From there, I started working for a concrete subcontractor. I went to work for a general contractor in 1986 as a Carpenter Foreman. Ten years later, I started with Fransen Pittman as a Carpenter Foreman and moved into the Superintendent position six months later. I am now in a position I never thought I would be in as the Director of Field Operations. Hard work, determination and patience will get you through life and in a position to achieve your goals.
I really enjoy bird watching. I like to be out on the back roads and exploring the trails with our modified jeep. Soon will be learning to fly fish.
I am a Colorado native and come from a large family, so it is little wonder that after getting married in September of 1999, I started a large family of my own.
After being hired on with Fransen Pittman in 1995, I started out as a Laborer then went through the carpentry apprenticeship, moved up from there to Carpenter, Foreman and then Senior Superintendent, which is my current position.
My family and I reside in Byers, Colorado, where our house and small hobby farm is located. On our farm, we raise chickens for eggs and cattle for beef and milk. The farm has been a good way to keep all 12 of my kids busy.
I was born and raised in Flowood, Mississippi. My high school sweetheart and I moved to Colorado right after graduating college to join the Fransen Pittman team. We quickly fell in love with the beautiful state.
I graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Environmental Engineering
Prior to getting into construction, I served 6 years in the Air National Guard, where I was an air transportation hazmat inspector. I joined the Fransen Pittman team in 2017, and I have had the opportunity to be a part of many great projects and worked with a lot of great people. I am passionate about building and find so much value in the relationships built along the way. It amazes me how such a large team can come together to take all different kinds of materials and build a structure that benefits the community around it.
I grew up hunting, fishing, and love getting involved in anything outdoors. I also enjoy being involved in my church and serving the local community. My wife and I believe that our purpose on this earth is to serve others and, in everything we do, show others the love that Jesus Christ has so graciously shown us.
I was born in Iowa, but grew up in Wyoming where I enjoyed the great outdoors to the fullest! My family was constantly camping, fishing, boating, and enjoying the great outdoors. I left Wyoming for a brief stint in Georgia, and then moved to Ohio for a while, before coming to Colorado in 2001.
I started off my education and training by joining the Ohio National Guard and become a mortarman in the cavalry (HOA!). During my enlistment, I attended the University of Cincinnati (Go Bearcats!) where I received an associate degree in Civil Engineering Technology and a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management. During my time as a Construction Manager, I received training and certificates in green building (LLED), quality control (CQAT), and health care (ASHE). Later, as a Safety Director, I received training and certificates as an Associate Safety Professional (ASP), Certified Safety Professional (CSP), and Red Cross CPR Instructor.
I spent the first part of my career after school and the National Guard climbing the project management ladder, building schools and medical facilities. After spending several years on that track, I realized my true passion was safety and helping others. I started helping folks with safety and storm water in 2013 and have not looked back. I began work with FP in 2015 and have found that I can use all of my skills learned throughout my entire career as a safety and environmental professional.
The great outdoors is always a place you can find yourself and remember the important things in life; skiing, biking, hiking, and traveling are all fun healthy activities. One of the places I’m happiest is building and creating in my workshop.
Being born in Nebraska (and I do bleed Big Red through and through), I was raised in Windsor, CO since the age of four amongst lots of family and friends. I spent most of my life growing up here and still do spend much of my time living, playing, and just chillaxing with many of the same people. I am utterly amazed at how much the area has grown and changed over the years. I am always happy to share a story about the little, tiny town Windsor used to be, but I do enjoy seeing it grow. When I need a taste of tiny, I always back and visit extended family and friends in northeast NE.
I am a proud CSU Ram with a BS in Construction Management. I am OSHA certified, hold a Green Building Certificate from CUS and an ICC B1-Inspector license, as well as an alumni member of the 40 under 40 Award Class for my work as a small business owner and community contributor.
Construction has been my life! From framing houses for family companies at an early age, to working my way through school as a laborer and an intern for a GC, and owning two of my own companies in the industry, it is really all I’ve ever done. After my last job working in the inspection field as a division manager, I chose to come back full circle to the GC world where I currently work for FP in Windsor, CO, just five minutes from home. Being a 1st time father of a 2-year-old daughter, it was the best decision I could have made.
I love all sports and the competitive nature of it all, whether participating, coaching or watching. Music and comedy shows are a good source of entertainment as well. Golf is a favorite pastime these days. I also enjoy working out, preferably outdoors if possible, and I try to mix in a good day of fishing every now and then. Cap it all off with a cold beverage around a campfire somewhere in the mountains or by a big lake, telling tall tales from the past, present, and a hopeful future!
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.
I was born in Walnut Creek, California and lived there until I was three. Our family then moved to Chandler, Arizona following my dad’s career working for airlines. We then made our move as a family to Elizabeth, Colorado (just east of Parker) when I was a freshman in high school, where I met my future wife in high school. Our whole family has now made our final move to the great state of Texas.
After graduating high school, I started my college career at Front Range Community College in Fort Collins, pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering. That pursuit only lasted my first year of school, until I decided to change my major and take my chances with Automotive Mechanics, which ultimately did not pan out either. At that point, I received some good advice from my future father-in-law, who suggested that I go to CSU to get a degree in Construction Management which, in hindsight, is what I should have started with because it would have saved me some time and a lot of money.
My first job in construction was with AMA Construction, a smaller GC who primarily worked for 1st Bank, building new banks and remodeling their older facilities. I started with this company as an intern during college and was hired on as a Superintendent when I graduated from CSU. After being at AMA for six years, I came to FP and started as a Project Engineer. Shortly thereafter, I became a Project Manager. In 2019, I took on the role as Project Executive to help grow and maintain our FP Team and culture, and to help track down new projects. As of Summer 2022, I have assumed the role as Vice President of the Dallas Fort Worth Region and have started our first Texas office in Grapevine!
I have always enjoyed working on and fixing cars/trucks-from diagnosing and fixing mechanical problems, to painting and full restoration of classic Porsches and Jeeps. A big part of the joy I get with my hobby is the ability to help people in my family, church, and friends with their car questions and needs.
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 a small town nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. A town of 500 is a great place to grow up, but a hard place to stay as kids start to get older and more curious. My family decided to trade in the igneous Sierras for the sedimentary Rockies and landed in Fort Collins my last year of elementary school. Fort Collins and Northern Colorado were my home until moving South of Denver in search of additional opportunities. After several years working as a professional musician, I decided it was time to trade out my life on the road, and pursue new skills, which gave me the perfect excuse to buy more tools.
The work ethic I had learned while traveling around the country playing music, and my ability to network, transformed into a career as a commercial plumber for projects around the Denver area. While completing a suite remodel for Fransen Pittman in 2017, Jim Andrews offered me a position as a Project Engineer for an Englewood Schools project, Charles Hay World School. I became CQAT certified before moving into estimating, and I've been here ever since.
In my time away from work, you can find me hosting and attending concerts, visiting breweries, and spending time with my wife and two kids.
