Q: What sets you apart from your competition?
A: Building or renovating a home can be stressful. A life-sucking event! Our processes are designed to put our customer’s experience first. Using quality materials and sound construction techniques are table stakes for contractors who want to stay in business. An overlooked consideration is what is it going to be like for the homeowner during the construction process. All construction projects have challenges but our clients enjoy the process because we work to make the experience pleasant and fun. Creating your dream home should be fun and pain free.
Q: What types of projects are the most fun?
A: Over time I have identified four criteria that contribute to fun and successful projects. 1. A winning construction team - that’s us! 2. Tasteful and detailed design. 3. Reasonable Clients. 4. The right budget. These projects are always slam dunk winners. We jump at the opportunity to work on projects that meet these conditions.
Q: What do you enjoy most about the job?
A: I love to “wow” people. I was the Tulane Baseball team captain in college and when I was able to contribute to something positive on the field, I loved the response from the fans. I get the same charge when my clients are thrilled with the work we do.
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: I take a goal oriented and disciplined approach to life. I have developed a routine over the last couple of years of meditating every morning when I wake up. I find that my meditation practice brings clarity to my approach to work and life and provides a calmness needed during stressful situations. I keep my goals on paper and in front of me and review them each day. Doing this helps me to stay focused on the kind of incremental improvement my clients value.
