What is your position within your company?
I am vice president of Collins Roofing Inc., Salt Lake City.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
My company recently finished work on a new Audi Executive Club located in Rio Tinto Stadium, Sandy, Utah, home of the Major League Soccer team Real Salt Lake. The project had some complicated access areas that required my crew to work mostly on their knees and stomachs.

What was your first roofing experience?
When I was about 10 years old, I spent a day riding around with my uncle during summer break. Back then, my uncle only did built-up roofing with gravel, and I distinctly remember the smell of melting asphalt. He also took me to Burger King, which was pretty awesome.
