With Winters Construction since



I manage the construction process from the original contract with the developer to the completed job: estimating, contract management, purchase orders, coordinating utilities with local jurisdictions, pulling permits, scheduling and budgeting. I am constantly managing products, people and the process of getting from raw land to paved roads and certificates of occupancy.


I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we have four children—two girls and two boys—ages 13, 11, 9 and 6.


I love to fly fish, hunt, exercise, and spend time with my family.


Although I was born in Montana, I call Springfield, Missouri home. Immediately out of high school, I went to culinary school and then to technical college. I left Missouri and went to Florida and worked for an electric utility and got certified as a lineman’s apprentice before taking a position as production manager for a metal fabrication company for 3 years, managing $1 million worth of monthly production. Through that job, I got more interested into construction and moved back to Missouri to start my own construction company, specializing in remodeling.

When we moved to Mississippi in 2009 to be closer to my wife’s family, I became a training manager for a fast casual restaurant franchise. My main responsibilities were training new general managers, and helping create processes to set and hold monthly inventory and sales budgets. At the same time, my interest in construction continued, and I completed a few light remodeling projects.

After moving to Oxford in 2013, I worked alongside family for several years and ended up building a few houses. During this time, I crossed paths with Britton who was looking to hire a project manager. Coincidentally, I was looking for a good opportunity.

I have the OSHA 30 certification and a commercial contractor’s license. I’m also certified in storm water pollution and have various other environmental certifications.


It is important to me to have very high character, very high integrity, and I’m very driven to be competitively better, meaning I want to keep pushing and pursuing excellence in what we do and the quality of product we put out. I want to encourage our team to understand that if we build a better product and there are better results down the road, not only are we saving the developer money, we're also keeping ourselves from doing warranty work, which ultimately means we all win.
