I grew up on a farm in Gilman, IL where I earned my work ethic from an early age. I am an entrepreneur at heart and always operate with a vision for the future in mind. I created this company with my partners so that I can build and transform spaces and surround myself with awesome people. I enjoy boating, snowboarding, hiking, and anything outdoors with my family. I live with my wife, Jessica, and our three kids (plus a dog, a few cats, & chickens) in Tolono, Illinois. My faith is the most important thing in my life and I pray to lead in a way that pleases God.
I started in this industry by owning a successful paint and drywall company. Ryan and I started C-U Under Construction together after working on a few jobs and realizing we have similar values, goals, and work ethics. I love what I do every day, especially working with our teams. My wife, Marla, and I live in Tolono with our family. We have five children and 3 grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to Colorado, hiking, camping at Lake Shelbyville, and cooking on my smoker.
After moving to the area almost 20 years ago to attend U of I, I decided to stay and have now lived here over half my life. I love the C-U area and the family we have built at C-U Under Construction. I now live in Urbana with my girlfriend Lauren and our dog Bailey. Go Illini!
I have been in the construction business for 20 years. My specialty is new construction and residential remodeling. I enjoy bringing people’s dreams to fruition. I have been an owner of C-U Under Construction for the past 6 years. I have two great kids and enjoy golfing and boating.
I have been with C-U Under Construction for almost 10 years. My primary role is to manage Human Resources and our office. I love working with the team in our office. We are always busy and there is fast-paced energy to each and every day. Our office team is second to none. As a partner, I strive to effectively implement systems that help us continually serve our clients and employees better. I live in Tolono with my husband Nick and have two sons. My son Abel is currently serving in the Marine Corps where my husband also served. My son Logan is in high school and active in several sports and skateboarding. I enjoy camping, watching sports, and spending as much time outdoors as possible in my spare time.
