Why are you passionate about dirt/BuildWitt?

The dirt world is new to me, but getting my hands dirty is something I know well. My dad led by example my whole life, and showed my family that hard work, good instincts and a little fire in your belly can take you anywhere. 

So much of the lives we all know and love relies on the work that’s done by the industry BuildWitt was literally built to serve — and if that isn’t inspiring, I don’t know what is. 

The passion that this team bleeds for the dirt world is real, and I’m so proud to get behind this movement to support, elevate and celebrate the hard work this industry pulls off every day. 

What motivates you more than anything else? What’s your personal “why”?

It might sound strange at first, but it’s change that motivates me most. I work and live my life to be a changemaker – in whatever I do.  

Favorite past times/hobbies?

As a self-proclaimed interior designer, I’m always reading up on new design trends and window shopping for inspiration. And my house is a big ol’ canvas for my ideas.

I also love baseball (to play and to watch), love going to the movies, discovering new music, traveling and being a hero to my (almost) seven-year-old niece.

Favorite book and/or quote?

In the way of books – Shakespeare anything (yes, I’m an English nerd).

As for quotes – Be pretty if you can, be witty if you must, but be gracious if it kills you.

Who do you look up to?

My Dad and my brother(s). They’re the best.
