My wife and I relocated to NW Reno from Lincoln, Calif., 3 years ago. We love the surrounding mountains and enjoy all of the outdoor activities the area offers.

We just sent our fourth and last child off to Wyoming to attend college, so we are now officially empty nesters. But that only lasted for a short period of time until we added Abbie, a 7-month-old Fox Red Labrador, to our home.

I have over 15 years of experience in project management, and in parks and landscape maintenance, and spent the last 5 years as a construction inspector on the installation of new parks, street landscapes, and park restoration projects within the City of Roseville in California.

I am very excited to be a part of this team and look forward to working with the residents and our contracted partners.

My family and I moved to Reno from DeLand, Fla., earlier this month. We were looking to escape the hot, humid Florida weather and we were attracted to Reno’s temperate climate. Since we’ve been here, we’ve enjoyed the area’s family atmosphere and the community’s welcoming spirit.

I have over 35 years of construction experience, from excavation to carpentry to steelwork. Except for a brief stint in the Marine Corps, I have been working in this business since I was 13. I look forward to putting my expertise to use for the residents of Somersett.
