Chief Executive Officer, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP
Outside of work…
My wife, Cindi, and I have four boys that keep us very busy. Hockey is a family sport. We love the game so much that we build an ice skating rink in the backyard every winter. When not on the rink, you may find me skiing or trying to solve crimes from my living room during Law and Order SVU.

During the summers, watch out for my killer golf swing. At the company golf outing, I enjoy my Tier 1 ranking.

What you don’t know about me…
It took my wife (who is also an architect) 8 months to agree on a design concept for our home.

How I got my bragging rights…
I earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1992… Go Hokies!!! I also worked in construction and believe that every architect should do this to learn some hands on experience between the design and building phases.

How I give back…
I am the Treasurer for the Community Soccer Club (Plain Twp), a member of Leadership Stark County Alumni Committee, a graduate of the Leadership Stark County (22nd class) and a soccer coach.

Who molded me into the person I am…
My Father… I grew up with a steady family and was taught how to live, just by seeing it in front of me. He started me in my faith and has been the most balanced figure in my life.

Architecture that inspires me…
Lloyds of London (Architect - Richard Rogers)
