Briefly tell us where you work and what you do.
I am the president and owner of JM Construction, Inc.
We specialize in Urban Construction, focusing on the Milwaukee metropolitan area. I am also involved in various real estate development activities.
Which project do you love the most or are most proud of?
A few years ago my team helped develop and build a national data center for Quarles & Brady, LLP. in a property we own. It was a unique project for a great client which helped them consolidated a strategic asset.
Do you have a favorite quote or author?
“If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn’t thinking” — Gen George S. Patton.
What is your favorite sandwich?
Cheeseburger, in paradise of course.
I love motorcycles, dirtbikes especially. My son and I use every excuse to turn yard work or a camping trip into riding.
Tell us something we don’t know about you.
I wear Allen Edmonds every day whether I’m meeting a client or climbing scaffold on a construction site. I have a pair that actually bear scars from the business end of a Sawzall.
Any other hobbies outside of work?
I really enjoy being outdoors. My family and I love camping, hiking, hunting, fishing and the like. For me, being “dialed out” is a campfire and mountains.
Iphone? Blackberry? Android? What’s your preferred method of communication?
iPhone. With my monthly minute total often eclipsing the 4,000 min range, to say I can’t live without it is an understatement.
