Professional Summary

My background:

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.

Work History
Superintendent, 09/2017 to Current
Rosendin Electric, Inc.Dallas, TX,
  • As a super with GMI my job is first to take the tentative schedule given to me when I receive my permit packet and city approved plans, and fine-tune the schedule and commit to a finish date. I coordinate all included subs and notify them of their upcoming start dates. On smaller projects we have done the TI demos in-house. On those jobs i have used labor (and temp labor) to demolish and remove the prior tenants' build out from our space.
  • Once the new project is underway I keep and enforce the schedule, staying in constant contact with subs and making sure they get documented reminders of our dates and expectation. I like to work closely with each sub on site so that I have good knowledge of their part of the project as we move forward, which helps in troubleshooting issues later on in the project. Quality control of each sub and the work they perform on my site is also my job.
  • Some clients like to feel very much a part of the project. In those instances I will write weekly updates with pictures and such and get them to the appropriate members of the team, usually on a Friday. I like to call in all subs' inspections to ensure that I know when the inspection is, and also to be there myself to walk with inspectors, which helps alleviate small issues and keep the ball rolling forward. Having good working relationships with inspectors and our subs is very important, and I like to think I do well at that.
  • All of the projects that I have run as superintendent have been from 2000 square-foot to 15,000 square-foot (my largest project to date), so I typically need to be the one who is the "competent person" and also control safety and OSHA requirements on my project.
  • Also on smaller projects sometimes I find time to do a few of the trades in-house, I am skilled in metal fab/MIG welding, metal stud framing, drywall install and finishes, timely door frames and other carpentry related trades, and I am not opposed to doing those things as long as I am able to stay on top of my superintendent duties. I still keep a truck toolbox loaded up with many of the general use tools for such occasions.
  • I have assisted on "ground up" projects, but I have only been the superintend on TI project and that is the position which I am seeking. I would love to get a couple of ground-up projects under my belt though!
Superintendent, 10/2007 to 09/2017
Rosendin Electric, Inc.Denver, CO,
    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
Assistant Superintendent/Job Foreman , 06/1998 to 02/2006
Westek Builders/JRP ContractorsCity, STATE,
  • When I started for Westek they had a framing and drywall division, I was hired as a foreman for the framing/drywall division. As framing/drywall wages dropped drastically Jim was unable to keep the framing/drywall division open. So upon closing the framing outfit he kept me on with Westek and trained me to be a superintendent. I built (as assistant super) several projects with Jim in the phoenix and Peoria area. But for reasons unknown by me, Jim decided to merge Westek with JRP in California, and after that all of our projects were in LA County And Las Vegas. I did about 2.5 years (5 projects) working out of town and maintaining a home and family here in Phoenix, it eventually took its toll on us and I was forced to leave JRP.
High School Diploma: , Expected in 06/1982
Greenway High School - Phoenix, AZ

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.
