My dedication to the engineering and construction industry was cultivated at an early age. After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln as Civil Engineer in 1996 while playing Division I Basketball (Big 8 Conference), I began my career working at Kiewit Construction and Union Pacific Railroad as a civil/ structural engineer on large capacity improvement projects nationwide.

 

While cutting my teeth in the engineering and construction for more than 23 years with Kiewit and UPRR, I earned a Master Degree in Business Administration (MBA) with an emphasis in Management. I would say at this time in my career the passion and desire to own and operate a successful engineering and construction company was ignited, but the flame did not rise until CJR Construction Group, LLC (CJR) was formalized.
