“It’s what clients hire us for. It’s the expectation. This industry has many, many challenges, and we’re here to help our clients and teams navigate those challenges in order to provide best value and successful projects.”

Life Outside Hyder

“I grew up playing pond hockey every day after school at a pond down the block from my home in Wisconsin. I’ve shared the passion with my son and family at mountain pond hockey tournaments here in Colorado over the last several years. It’s hockey in its purist form and a great way to spar with friends, get outdoors, take in some fresh air, and have fun with the family. I have been happily married over 20 years to my wife, Julia, who is a COO of a nonprofit organization based here in Colorado. We have two children, Calvin and Maya, both of whom keep us very busy supporting their interests in sports, preferably competitive hockey and swimming respectively.”

Years I have lived and built in the mountains


Times a week I consciously pause to be grateful for all the opportunities I’ve been given
