Where are you from and how long have you been in construction?

I’m from Peabody, MA and I have been around the trade my whole life. My father is a general contractor as well, so I grew up going to the job sites with him.

What do you love most about what you do?

The end result of a new home build or renovation is great, but going through the process truly gives me joy.

What is your favorite project that you’ve done and why?

I’ve renovated a condo on Mass Avenue in Boston. It’s a beautiful building. It was so much fun blending the modern with the traditional aesthetic.

What is your favorite neighborhood in MA?

I love Commons in Salem, MA. There are beautiful old homes surrounding a lovely park. There is so much history packed into one area.

If you weren’t a general contractor, what would you be doing?

I’m also a firefighter-medic. I’m lucky enough to be able to pursue both of my passions.
