I joined the Clarke Contractors team in 2010 after working for numerous years in the Commercial and Custom Residential Construction markets. Starting out working in the construction field as a carpenter, I learned many of the skills I use today by getting his hands dirty and learning the ins and outs construction. These self-taught skills have greatly enhanced the way I plan out and run jobs today by being able to understand how projects come together and being able to foresee potential issues. I have always been a true Buckeye by being born in Toledo and then moving and growing up in Cincinnati. After attending Forest Park High School I enlisted in the US Army where I served our country for 3 years as a Military Police Officer. After getting out of the Army, I returned home and spent the next 12 years serving the City of Cincinnati by being a Police Officer.
