Having spent most of my life in Rapid City other than the 6 years that I lived in Arizona.While in Scottsdale, I worked at PHArchitecture, a prestiguiose, boutique architectural firm, from 1995 – 2001. I started my career as an AutoCAD Draftsman and later worked my way up to Project Manager where I was engaged with the production and review of construction documents for medium and large scale commercial projects. In addition to coordinating project teams and outside consultants, I was active with my review and evaluations throughout the construction process and have acquired invaluable on the job experience. I was also exposed to numerous zoning and building codes, a skill set that has proven valuable to my clients in my current profession.
In 2001, My wife, Christin, and I moved back to Rapid City to be near family and become involved with my family's business – The Grand Gateway Hotel and Foothills Inn. As a third generation business owner, I share many of the same goals and ambitions of my grandfather who first went into the hotel industry. Being in an environment that demanded performance and ingenuity, I learned firsthand that exceeding expectations was essential to my success and that of the business as well. I strive to exceed expectations in everything that I put my hand to. I look forward to working with new clients and helping them to find a new home for their family, a new place to do business, or make an investment that will help them to reach their goals.
