I specialize in high-end residential and commercial construction management. I love my work because I get to work with all kinds of people. I'm constantly choreographing clients, architects, engineers, vendors, suppliers, laborors, craftsmen, city planners and inspectors, towards successful project completion. Every day presents a new set of challenges and I love solving problems! Here is a sampling of recent project I have managed:

Values: The Project Manager must be willing to take full responsibility for the successful completion of the entire project. He uses time tested tools to interpret the plans to create a working Scope of Work, Budget and Schedule. Here is where the Owner's, Architect's and Engineer's dreams are converted into reality. He uses his broad experience to select the best team players to complete the work. He knows how long each step should take, and how much it should cost. After extensive pre-planning and the project has begun, he uses his natural organization, mentoring and coaching, huristic consciousness, linear reasoning and persuavive verbal skills to keep the team, and the project, on track.

I have been fortunate to successfully deliver many challenging and high-profile projects.*
