Credentials: Associate Safety and Health Manager, Safety Trained Supervisor, Occupational Safety and Health Professional, Construction Quality Management for Contractors

Professional accomplishments: While in the United States Army, he was a notification trainer and mission leader to the WIA and KIA (Wounded in Action and Killed in Action) notification branch. This exposed him first-hand to the casualties of war, and through that experience, he learned the direct impact that a debilitating injury or death can have on an individual and their family. This drives his commitment to accident prevention.

Extracurricular: Society of American Military Engineers, Ronald McDonald House of Northern Virginia, Feed My Starving Children, DC Central Kitchen.

Favorite song: “Nothing Man” by Pearl Jam. “I specifically connect with this song because it reminds me of the love I have for my wife. ‘I just know that without her, I’d be a kite without a string, a nothing man,’ as Eddie Vetter said.”
