What is your position within your company?
I am a "future owner in training" for Dryspace Inc., Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I will own the company in about three years.
What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
My company worked on a reroofing project at a biology building at the University of Iowa, Iowa City. We had to raise an existing glass panel greenhouse over the roof's block wall to reach the roof area. Out of 300-plus glass panels, we only broke two during the project.
Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
My dad is a general contractor, so I grew up knowing the construction industry. I've always had a passion for working outside. I took a job with Dryspace during a short break after my first year of college, and here I am 21 years later.
