I am looking for a career opportunity where I can leverage my passion for hunting, the outdoors, property improvements, and ranching to achieve my employers goals, while developing an advanced understanding for land/ranch management.

I’m currently working as a Field Engineer II at Kiewit Construction, with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Southern Methodist University. Although I enjoy applying my skills as an efficient and resourceful problem-solver, future roles with my current company would be primarily behind a desk…and therefore of little interest to me.

I'm a quick learner and a hard worker. I'll provide hard physical labor and be someone who can plan and execute long term projects.

I will care for your property as if it were my own. I will keep your best interests in mind and work with you to leverage your vision so you can reach your ultimate goals.

Again, I appreciate your time and consideration. Please call or email if you would like any further information about my background or qualifications.
