Not one to sit idle when Andrew was 16, he set his sights on working in the construction industry. A quick learner and hard worker, he quickly absorbed the trade and has served in a variety of roles. His years of experience include working as a carpenter, superintendent, estimator, and project manager. With his previous employer, Andrew served as Vice President of Field Operations for more than 10 years and was responsible for the overall leadership and strategy development of the company’s operations.

Andrew earned a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. He is a LEED 2.0 Accredited Professional and certified Associate Constructor.
A habitual home remodeler, Andrew enjoys flipping homes, repurposing old furniture, and completing building projects that his wife finds on Pinterest. With children all grown Andrew can now be found sitting idle on occasion – but only to read a good book (at a rate of about two a week), watch an Arkansas Razorback game, or enjoy a relaxing beach vacation with his wife.
