Class: 2013 Age: 35 Company: United Hoisting & Scaffolding

Professional accomplishments: After starting as an apprentice in 1998, I am now a co-owner overseeing the shop and field operation. I have implemented digital technology to communicate more efficiently from field to office, and we are currently working our way to becoming paperless.
Off the clock: I enjoy golf and and spending time with my 16-month daughter.
Extracurricular: Hurricane Sandy hit us pretty hard, and we set up a mini triage to help families in need. We cleaned out homes, provided meals and clothing, and used our cranes and trucking to help move boats that were blocking roads
preventing emergency personnel from doing their jobs.
Fun fact: Every Sunday, I need to be home before 7 p.m. to clear my mind for the week ahead.
