At 17 I started my first construction job at Arron Bros as an apprentice steel std framer at th Anasazi Luxury Apartment project at 40th St. and Cactus. By 19 I was married, my in-laws lived in Bakersfield Cal so we moved to be closer to her family. Steel stud framing goes hand-in-hand with drywall, so the next job I got was learning drywall hanging and finish at T&S Drywall in Cal. I excelled at finish work so I bought a full set of Premier drywall tools and worked as a piece-work "taper" for the next 10 years. By 1996 I was divorced and a single father of two small children, the 90s were tough on us, we came back to family in Phx. I was hired at CDS framing where I fit right in. Within my first year there they made me a foreman and I thrived with them.
2yrs later i moved over to Westek Builders, where I was offered a substantial wage increase and a company truck. I ran many framing/drywall projects there but eventually Westek closed their framing division. They kept me on as a superintendent in training on the GC side. I enjoyed my time there and they taught me so much, but when their whole operation moved to Cal I tried working for them in Ca, but ultimately needed to find good stable employment here in Phoenix.
Over the next few years I did a handful of side projects on my own, and I worked for a couple of GCs, but only for short times. One was IFCM doing mostly construction management project for city of Phoenix. The other was Foresite Design, where I ran their Honeywell Deer Valley project for several months, and I did an 11.5 acre civil project with them for the city of Tempe. After my time at Foresite I started as a super for Denco, and the rest is covered under employers included in this résumé.
At Denco I also had the same typical superintendent duties that I have at GMI, except that on top of all of the normal superintendent duties, I was also expected to do quite a lot of physical labor. On many of the remodel projects I ran the job as a super and also ran (and performed) the framing, drywall, finish, paint and grid ceilings as well, with a small team of multi trade helpers. At Denco we did dental tenant improvements exclusively. Where I am now (at GMI) we do animal hospital TI projects, so I was a great fit here when I left Denco
Back then we still had industrial arts in school. That's where I spent my time, I took one year of Auto Shop, two years of woodshop, two years of metal shop, and four years of architecture/drafting.
