What has been the most fulfilling moment of your career thus far? When we received the certificate of occupancy on the Hunt Tower ranks at the top.

What has been the most significant change in your industry during the past few years? Technology. Construction is consistently in the top 10 U.S. industries, yet the total spent on construction field technology ranks near the bottom. We are starting to see helpful tools specifically designed for our industry that will significantly impact our efficacy in the coming years.

What is the strength of Northwest Arkansas? I believe the Waltons, Hunts, and Tysons are the biggest drivers behind Northwest Arkansas. These families are investing in quality of life projects that benefit all who live here.

What is your biggest passion, and why? I love everything outdoors, I love my family and I love it most when I can combine the two.
