Design and Teaching Philosophies: Teaching the next generation of leaders in the Construction Management field is our mission. Preparing them with the knowledge, concepts and processes required to work with tools that have yet to be invented is a principle mantra of our program. I have had the privilege to experience all phases of real estate development—design, code compliance, construction, ownership, management and sales as well as state agency work. This coupled with my experience in transportation, manufacturing, finance and banking gives me a unique perspective on business development and consulting that informs my teaching. My passion for education and the professional development of young leaders has allowed me to mentor and guide several entrepreneurs and businesses throughout my career. This experience allows me to bring a unique perspective to the classroom.
