Elder H.S.: 1999
University of Cincinnati: 2005
I’ve always been interested in construction since I was a young boy growing up in the outskirts of Cincinnati; building tree-houses in the woods for fun, assembling birdhouses in Boy Scouts, then in high school designing and building a bridge from popsicle sticks. This led to my acceptance into the University of Cincinnati’s aerospace engineering program.
My path took many turns, and after living and teaching halfway around the world in the far east, graduating college, and helping rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, I ended up back in Cincinnati.
I formed a company, with two other men, which there is a need for. A company that understands the fundamentals of exterior water management and can express the rationale behind proper techniques. A company that offers our clients the information they need to make best decision for their very unique situation.
Co Owner Empire Contractors LLC 2011
I am an inspector, estimator and project manager. Our tall and steep team always says, “If Brian won’t get on the roof to inspect it, no-one should!” I have a background as a training coordinator of management personnel. I am proud to be born and raised in Cincinnati. The thing I love most about my job are the varieties of different people and places I discover everyday in our amazing Queen City. There is truly nothing more satisfying than being able to share the gifts I’ve been given to help folks. Every Home is an Empire.
I have worked with Empire since 2013. I personally enjoy the diversity of the jobs we handle at Empire. Each workday is something different, from silicone roofing systems to old home rehab. Roofing is a relatively new industry for me, although I’ve been around construction for most of my life. I started doing data networking back when we still used landlines. Having recently returned to Cincinnati it’s nice to see her grow and watch the neighborhoods come back together. I’m excited to see new life downtown and the return of Over the Rhine.
I’ve enjoyed my time being a foreman with Empire Contractors for over a year now. I take pride in providing customers with the quality experience and craftsmanship we deliver. I’ve personally been around residential and commercial roofing since I was 15 years old. I have also trained as a firefighter and EMT. I’ve been a Cincinnatian my entire life. My hobbies include: camping and hiking at Red River Gorge, golfing, fishing, skiing, boating, canoeing, and anything outdoors.
