Bachelors Degree:

Building Construction Auburn University 1982


I began my construction career working for my father who was a General Contractor in Huntsville, AL.  He started his business, Lanford Construction Co., in 1964, and continued to operate it until his death in 2012.


I started doing simple tasks for Lanford at 8 years old, and at 13, began working on jpbsites during summer vacations.  I learned carpentry from my father and 3 uncles during this time.  In 1978, I started attending Auburn University, and I would work for Lanford during breaks, leaning estimating and project management skills.


Since earning my degree in 1982, I have worked in various postions for different employers doing estimating and project management in residential and commercial construction, and also worked in retail at Home Depot helping construction professionals.
