I am currently the VP/GM of Complete Exteriors and Interiors. It is a family-owned company that works in a variety of facets of construction, including residential installation of siding, windows, gutters, and Gutter Helmet; along with government work for weatherization and lead abatement; and also commercial and industrial pipe insulation. My strengths are problem solving, overseeing operations, understanding how to run a business, dealing with people (both as a salesman and an employer), I was born and raised in Sioux City and had instilled in me from an early age to help others when you can. I come from a giving family and believe that a community can be measured by how well it treats its citizens with the most needs. In high school I saw firsthand the hard-work that immigrants go through to become citizens – I remember one friend’s parents who moved work meat-packing all day studying in the evening for citizenship test and being grateful for the opportunity to be here and raise their family. I am married with 3 children and I hope to show them through example the importance of embracing different cultures and people and the importance of giving back to their community by reaching out to those in the greatest need.
