I’ve lived in Lake Pointe since 1997 with my wife and two children. I served as president of West Travis County Municipal Utility District #3 since 2000, and I advocated strongly for the recent consolidation of the two districts within Lake Pointe.
Professionally, I’ve been involved for the past 25 years in construction project management, engineering, and contract management for commercial, civil, and industrial projects. My primary focus has been project management/engineering with a special emphasis on the coordination of commissioning of life-safety systems for commercial and industrial facilities. I’m especially proud of my professional involvement with the construction of the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and the Frost Bank Tower.
I’m accomplished in all areas of construction project management and engineering, including owner, consultant and subcontractor relations, preconstruction analysis, estimating and value engineering, submittal review and project document control, critical path network scheduling, and quality and cost control. I have a masters in civil
engineering and undergraduate degrees in mathematics and civil engineering.
Currently, I’m a plant manager for Dario Panelized Systems, a division of the Escobedo Group.
