If you want to do good work, it’s best to do it with good people.
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 in southern California and also lived in Idaho, eventually making my way permanently to Colorado in the early 2000s. Having lived in several different cities throughout my early 20s, to include Dallas and Las Vegas, I found myself most happy here in Colorado. I hope to retire by a beach eventually; I am truly a beach bum at heart.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Criminal Justice. In 2020, I completed my master’s degree in Finance. With all these fields combined, I feel like I can tackle just about anything in my career path. I am also a Certified Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for children for the city of Denver. While I haven’t taken on new cases in quite some time, since volunteering while I was in school, it is something I will most likely do again in my future, as it holds a very special place in my heart and is something I am very proud of.
I’ve waited tables, managed the front end of Home Depot, and been involved in insurance brokerage. At one of my jobs, I got my foot in the door in the accounting department and I started thriving. I knew it was where I was meant to be for the long term. After building my basic account skills for over a decade, I decided to get my master’s in Finance and take my career path a step further. Since starting at FP, I’ve been able to successfully build upon my accounting skills, as well as develop my knowledge and contribute in the finance area of the business.
I love the water, especially paddle boarding and swimming. I also enjoy hiking, roller blading, traveling, picnics, and dogs. Summer nights on the patio are typically my favorite place to be.
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 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.
I was born in El Paso, Texas and grew up there until moving to Denton, Texas to go to college. I loved the heat, the wide-open feel of the desert, and mild winters. As a kid, I was outside my whole life, and El Paso was a military town with lots of aircrafts flying around, so I grew to love aviation. My parents were professional musicians, so naturally I was born to play music and I was also quite fond of crafting things out of wood.
After high school, I went off to college but lost interest. I chose to pursue music and aircraft mechanics instead, which brought me to the Denver area. In Denver, I could both play music professionally and work in construction; the perfect world for me. 30 years later, I am still doing it. With a total of 35 years in commercial construction, I’ve spent time as a Finish Carpenter, a Project Superintendent, and a mentor to young people coming into the trades.
Playing in the church group and at night in the clubs like my parents did is the life for me, but I am always improving things around the house and staring up in the sky at every airplane that comes close.
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 was born and raised in sunny San Fernando Valley, California.
I have been a Project Coordinator with FP since 2010 and have 14 years of experience in similar fields. Construction has always been a part of my life. With my husband working in the field, I have seen and experienced the many different stages of projects, which has given me a better understanding of all the hard work that goes into every building FP creates.
I love living in Colorado and experiencing all four seasons. I am a mother of five awesome boys and wife to one of the foremen on the FP team. I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, and running around with my boys.
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 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 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 was raised in Whittier, CA and graduated high school in 1975. I moved to Colorado Springs in 1992.
I started my career in Orange County, California in 1976 doing a carpentry apprenticeship while working in residential construction. As a Journeyman Carpenter, I built high-end homes in southern California and was Foreman on a four-story medical center project. I moved to Colorado Springs in 1992, where I started GLR Builders and framed custom homes until I was hired on with Fransen Pittman as an Assistant Superintendent in May of 2016. I've been involved in multiple projects such as Parker Plaza, Banning Lewis Prep Academy, Charles Hay Elementary School, Deer Trail PK-12, and Wray PK-12 School. I love my job and enjoy working around the awesome people of FP.
I have a beautiful wife Diane, three awesome kids, and four lovable grandchildren. My family is my life, and we enjoy getting together for BBQ's, and baseball games. I enjoy riding motorcycles, fishing, and just getting away for the weekend.
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.
Born and raised in Central Pennsylvania, best known for Hershey Chocolate and rolling Amish farmland. Drawn to adventure and skiing after college, I made the move to Denver Colorado, and it has now been a 15-year adventure.
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. 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 fishing/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 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 am a native of Denver, Colorado with a passion for being outdoors. I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, golfing, and anything sports related, seeing as I started playing sports at an early age with my three brothers.
I graduated from CSU with a bachelor's degree in Construction Management in 2015.
Immediately after college, I was hired by FP. Since entering the industry, I have become certified in quality assurance, advanced storm water training, and OSHA 30.
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 as a missionary kid 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 Franktown, CO 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' Douglas County 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 grew up in Maryland but came out to Colorado where I attended CSU for Construction Management. I grew up on three acres that were heavily wooded with horse riding trails and where bow hunting and bass fishing is a way of life. I’ve always loved the outdoors and family camping trips were a regular thing-and still are to this day! I’m 1 of 9 children and we all love and play music. My parents have 31 grandchildren, so my four girls think everyone is a cousin.
I attended River Hill High School in Clarksville, Maryland and then attended Catonsville Junior College in Baltimore, Maryland before transferring to Colorado State (GO RAMS). I have a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management.
I love to watch projects come together and feed off the energy that’s created by leading a team to accomplish something great together. They say that when you find something you love to do, you’ll never work a day in your life. I was lucky enough to find that when I came to work for Fransen Pittman back in 2007. There’s no project too big or too small that we won’t take on with enthusiasm and personal pride-that’s why I love working here.
I started fly fishing in college and was a founding member of the CSU Angler’s Club. Camping, snowboarding, hiking, home projects, fishing, playing guitar, and being a dad are my favorite hobbies.
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 grew up in Austin, Texas with my younger sister, mother, and father, who was a general contractor. When not in school or playing baseball and football, I spent most of my time on the Texas coast and the lakes around Austin. Summers were always busy working for my family, friends, and neighbors and doing construction work for my dad.
I graduated from Westlake High School in August of 1993 and went to college at Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, TX from 1993-1997, graduating from the Forestry School with a degree in Environmental Science. The majority of my training in the commercial construction industry came through the seven years I spent in the Hansel Phelps Construction between 1998 and 2005. In 2009, I was selected as one of the top 20 under 40 construction professionals by the Colorado Construction Magazine and I have been involved with the AGC’s Future Leaders Forum and Executive Leadership Academy. I am currently LEED Accredited with the USGBC, and hold a Class A ICC Certification and Class A Contractor’s Certificate with the City of Denver and several other Colorado municipalities.
My professional career in commercial construction started with Hensel Phelps Construction Co. in Austin, Texas, in the fall of 1998. I was relocated to Alamogordo, New Mexico shortly after that to build a $52M fighter plane hangar complex for the Air Force and US Army Corps of Engineers. From there, I moved to Dallas to build the Automated People Mover Guideway for DFW Airport, then I moved to Denver in 2001 to build the Colorado Convention Center, the Convention Center Hyatt Hotel, and the Ameristar Casino Expansion in Blackhawk. My positions at HP included: Field Engineer, Project Engineer, and Area Superintendent. In 2005, I decided to leave Hensel Phelps and join Fransen Pittman as a Project Manager. Some notable projects I've worked on include: The Anchor Center for Blind Children, Lockheed’s SOSC Orion Guidance Facility, Mission Hills Church, Flatirons Church, and the Children’s Museum of Denver. After building Anchor Center’s new school, I was invited to join their Board of Directors and served that great organization for four years. In 2016, I was promoted to Project Executive, and I am currently responsible for overall management of company operations, business development, mentorship, training, and contract negotiations.
My hobbies include riding motorcycles and dirt bikes, hunting, fishing, camping, cooking BBQ, listening to music, and investing in residential real estate. My wife, Stephanie, and I have been living in the foothills outside of Evergreen since 2003.
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.
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.
As a Native to Colorado, growing up in Aurora, I spent the majority of my childhood on my skateboard, accomplishing my first local skate-shop sponsorship by age 12. I mostly played outdoors in areas that have now been consumed by development and growth. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to experience a childhood in CO, in a much more raw setting. I have witnessed the exponential growth of the metro area and surrounding cities and beyond.
My passion for construction came from being a single father and my dedication to providing the best life for myself and my son. I never thought that I would be in the construction industry, as my education at Western State University in Gunnison, CO was geared more toward the Fine Arts, but fate had other plans for me, and led me into the successful career that I have today. Looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing.
Being in the commercial construction field for more the 20+yrs, I have been fortunate enough to play a part in a lot of this growth. From my start as a short-lived laborer, and then “Jack of All” Carpenter, then working my way into a supervisory role in my early 30s, I have had the opportunity to grow within the field and continue to advance my skill set to this day. My focus on quality and craftsmanship comes from my understanding of the project needs and expectation of each and every client. Success is in the detail.
During my free time, I enjoy all that Colorado has to offer. Spending time in the Rockies is my guilty pleasure and my happy place. I have been an avid snowboarder since I was a 12. When I am not on my board, I enjoy backpacking, camping, and horseback riding in remote areas. I also enjoy soaking in the many hot springs throughout CO whenever the opportunity arises. Long road trips have recently become more frequent, as I still have much to see of this beautiful land I call home. If I am not playing outside, I am rooting on my Broncos and Rockies throughout the year.
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 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.
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 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.
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 final move to Elizabeth, Colorado (just east of Parker) when I was a freshman in high school, where I met my future wife in high school.
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 really good advice from my future father-in-law, who suggested that I go to CSU to get a degree in Construction Management, which was in hindsight 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 in 2011. 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.
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.
I am a native of Colorado and am married with one son.
I majored in Interior Design/Graphics at Colorado State University. I still enjoy designing kitchens, bathrooms, offices and various other spatial remodel projects, on the side, for my husband’s small construction/custom cabinetry business.
I love (a.k.a. am addicted to) lattes, anything dark chocolate, Hacienda margaritas, sushi and well-crafted cocktails. I like to wakeboard, garden, gourmet cook, travel, watch movies, do anything that’s creative/crafty, and hangout with family, friends and colleagues!
