How In Cadence Contracting was Born
I was born and raised in Colorado Springs; I was raised on a construction site with my dad who has been roofing and contracting since the 1970s. After the attack on 9/11 I left to join the military as a Chinook Helicopter Mechanic. I served a tour in Iraq in 2008 maintaining helicopter equipment that was used to move Soldiers and equipment and evacuate casuaties. I used my GI Bill to put myself through college and working at Schwickerts Tecta American, one of the largest roofing companies in Minnesota. I worked my way up to Project manager where I managed roofing projects from 2.8 million to 13 million dollars. One of my largest projects was roofing 57 buildings at Gustavus Adolphus College.
As far as my military career, I made it to the rank of Staff Sergeant, serving as a Platoon Leader of 30-50 Soldiers and was responsible for the maintenance of 10 million dollars worth of equipment including 20 rotary wing helicopters.
After completing my education and 13 years of military service I moved back to Colorado Springs to build my own roofing company. I have managed over 100,000 squares of roofing (1 square = 100 square feet), completed countless construction projects from full renovations to minor repairs. It has taken a lot of sacrafice and struggle, but I can honsetly say I am truly living the American Dream.
