General Manager for Calgary
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF THE SCOTT BUILDERS TEAM?
Scott Builders has allowed me to grow personally and professionally in a safe and nurturing environment. I love that at Scott Builders, all team members are treated with respect, and everyone is valued.
WHAT INITIALLY DREW YOU TO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY & WHAT MADE YOU STAY?
I was initially drawn to the construction industry through a sense of accomplishment in creating something great. I don’t consider myself an artistic person, so being a part of building helps me feel creative. I’ve stayed in the industry due to the ongoing satisfaction and pride felt when a construction project is complete. The opportunities I’ve encountered and the ability to grow within the industry have helped shape who I am as a General Manager. I’m grateful for the lessons I’ve learned, the ability to understand the various aspects of construction, and the ongoing opportunity to learn and grow as the industry continues to evolve.
WHEN YOU’RE NOT HARD AT WORK, WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU?
When I’m not working, my goal is not to be found! I love spending time outdoors – backcountry skiing, cross-country skiing, hunting, hiking, and enjoying all that western Canada offers. I love getting away from it all!
SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE? (OR YOUR HERO)
My dad has been a great source of inspiration in my life. He helped instill a sense of exploration and wonder in me. He always encouraged me to get out and explore and to not wait around for someone else to be available, that if you want to do something just go and do it. My wife is also an inspiration to me and our family. Her dedication to her goals and our family helps keep everything in perspective. I’m also incredibly proud of my two daughters, who kick butt and take names. They are confident and fun to be around, which as a Dad, is wonderful to see.
WORDS YOU LIVE BY: (FAVOURITE QUOTE OR LIFE PHILOSOPHY)
One of my main mantras is “get out there!” – which applies to all facets of life. Often it can be easy for us to get stuck or stand by waiting for the right timing or opportunity. I firmly believe if you are inspired or have a goal, get out there and do it!
