When I am not at work you can find me on the local Vancouver trails, rain or shine, with my faithful, furry companion Chloe. Some of my other passion are cooking, snowboarding and skiing, and of course music. I catch as many “rock” shows in the local Vancouver venues as possible, driving as far as Calgary once for a live show.
I have been in and around construction most of my life. For me, the draw to work for the HCG was the great team environment, company ethics and the calibre of projects completed. My passion for working hard in a fast-passed environment, while keeping the atmosphere light and fun, seemed a great fit with the HCG attitude. Upon meeting Todd, the owner, I could see his passion for the projects, and the clients, as well as how important it was to him, to make sure his team had all the necessary tools they needed. Not only to do their best individual jobs, but for the success of the entire project. Meeting the rest of the team, especially Denver, felt very natural. I knew that the HCG was going to be a great fit.
