Q:  Why did you join NAIOP and what can you tell us about the experience?
A: I joined NAIOP in February of this year and immediately felt welcomed by the group. Within six months, I decided to join the membership committee in order to help do my part to see the organization grow. The panel discussions that I attended have not only provided me with a wealth of knowledge but have also connected me with individuals that share a common passion about construction. It is great to meet and get to know so many different people that all do their part in making this city a great place to work and live.

Q:  How did you get started in the Real Estate industry and why?
A: I started in the construction industry nearly 20 years ago when I began working for a small tile and granite installation company during college. The owner of the company was a mentor to me and taught me all facets of his business including sales, accounting, and even installation. At that time in my life, I had no idea that my job would turn into a career path. That path eventually led me to Creative Materials where I started back in January of 2016. We supply tile, LVT, and paver systems to the commercial construction industry through a unique consultative approach that ultimately enables our clients to create with confidence. My goal as the Mid-Atlantic Business Development Manager is to build trust, brand recognition, and develop cohesiveness throughout a variety of sectors of our business including developers/owners, architects/designers, and contractors.

Q:  Are you originally from DC? How do you spend your free time?
A: I am originally from Pittsburgh and moved to the DC area about 16 years ago for my first building material sales position out of college. I feel lucky to be here and to have access to what seems to be endless museums (my favorite is the Marine Corp Museum) and fantastic restaurants. My wife, 2 daughters, and in-laws have forced me to become a Nats fan over the past 5 years. It was a lot of fun to see them win the World Series since I am a sports fanatic! During my free time (when I am not watching sports), I am an avid golfer and also coach my oldest daughter’s travel soccer team.
