What is your position within your company?
I am managing partner with Absolute Roofing & Waterproofing, Frisco, Texas.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
My company completed a two-phase roof system installation project on the Corps of Cadets' dorms at Texas A&M University, College Station (see "A roofing salute," December 2017 issue). We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into—the 80-year-old buildings had been completely gutted for a renovation, and the roof systems were heavily tapered on existing concrete roof decks. We worked under a strict timeline and completed both phases on time. It brought a strong sense of accomplishment to be part of such a great project.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
During high school, Chris Perry, who also is managing partner with Absolute Roofing & Waterproofing, and I were involved in the roofing/remodeling industry at our friend's dad's small company. After college, we fell back into the industry to work as adjusters after Hurricane Ike. A year and a half later, we realized that type of roofing work wasn't what we wanted to do long term, so we started Absolute Roofing & Waterproofing. Now, our goal is to create lasting partnerships with customers and always do what we say we will do.
