With over 30 years of experience in the construction industry, specializing in mechanical trades such as electrical and plumbing, as well as home building, I bring a wealth of expertise to the table. Additionally, I possess 15+ years of valuable experience in estimating and project management. Currently, I am the proud owner of Dutch Built Homes, a thriving company based in North Carolina, where we focus on land development and constructing both spec homes and custom homes. Excitingly, I am embarking on a new venture as the host of a forthcoming podcast and vlog titled “The Contractor’s Compass,” dedicated to providing valuable insights and guidance to fellow contractors.


Your most important sale will always be yourself.
