Managed the carpentry division of Redi’s construction department. I was onsite coordinating materials, equipment, and manpower to various jobs such as building offices inside of steel buildings that Redi had constructed, remodeling existing offices and workshops, and building turn-key buildings mostly in the oil field. I also had to obtain permits and meet with inspectors and make sure deadlines were achieved. Started searching for other construction jobs and submitting bids until Redi bought out a union construction company that took over all of the construction division.

Summary

I have worn many different hats throughout my years of employment. I grew up in Shell, Wyoming on a large sheep and cattle ranch. I get my work ethic and learning ability from working with my Dad on that ranch. I am a very hard worker and extremely reliable. I can handle constructive criticism and will improve on things that I need to improve on.

I was the fastest operator at Painter Plant to advance and certify in all five levels of operations. I am by far the youngest Crew Lead and I love learning and teaching new operators. I am easy to get a long with and a very fast learner. 

I owned and operated a very successful small construction business that at one time I had four employees and did various jobs in southwest Wyoming. I still keep my business license current in order to do small carpentry jobs when I have the time.

I managed a guest ranch south of Evanston, Wyoming and loved it. My job duties included all of the financial duties that come with running a working livestock and guest ranch to taking guests on horseback rides and snowmobile tours.

My family and I would love to relocate back up to the Bighorn Basin and I am hoping to be a great addition to your company.

Thank you
