I'm the founder and CEO of Lafayette Metal and Glass. It is my drive for more knowledge, greater innovation and insight that has led to the development of a holistic, groundbreaking approach within the construction industry. During my formative years, when mentors were in short supply, I learned by immersing myself in the AEC industry: reading hundreds of books, pursuing opportunities at other companies, and truly learning from my experiences and the people around me. These insights formed the foundation for my path forward and a greater understanding in achieving profitability with employees in mind. It is my goal to volunteer and mentor individuals of small businesses by leveraging my experience and expertise surrounding employee experience, development and success as an integral part - not an afterthought - to company profitability.
