In my current role as the Assistant Chief Building Official and Residential Building Official my job comprises of direct supervision of inspectors, residential plans examination, commercial/residential inspections for structure and mechanical alterations/repairs and new builds and zoning board (non-member) with various others duties as assigned or volunteered for.

I made my rise from inspector to assistant CBO through gaining knowledge from independent study work, in office and field training and learning quickly from my predecessors.

I gained my passion for buildings when I was a teenager remodeling homes with a family member which lead me to enroll in the Carpenters Union were I went through and earned a journeymen certificate after a 4 year apprenticeship; in class and field instruction. As a Journeymen carpenter I was promoted foremen then supervisor of carpenters for work in Ohio and various other states. I was also a part owner in a union company in which I did the biding and take offs of commerical plans. We closed this company due to my new employment with the City of Lakewood and my Partners job with Carpenters training school.

In short my thirst for knowledge in all building aspects will continue to advance in this field.
