Currently live in Richfield WI, Jamaica is the furthest place I have traveled.

What was your favorite TV Show while you were growing up?

Scooby Doo - could there be anything better?

What is one of the least intelligent things you have done and then wondered “What was I thinking?!”

Keep in mind I now work for one of the safest construction companies in the US, whose motto is "everyone goes home safe." 12 years ago I was building my house. My trusses came in two section, the larger bottom section and a 5'-0" top piece. After setting the bottom trusses I was standing on top of them waiting to receive the smaller one, feet spread apart each standing on a 1 1/2" wide piece of wood with me up over 30 feet in the air looking down - nothing keeping me from falling other than luck. I remember thinking to myself "if I fall this is really gonna hurt!"

What are you most excited about with regards to ABAA’s future?

The research ABAA is doing out in the field in real life conditions, and getting these results to construction groups like Architects, Engineers, Construction Managers, and Installers.
