What makes Weitz such a great place to work?
I am continually impressed at how collaborative and open the employees of this company are. As a military guy, these are requisite elements of a work environment for me.

What is one thing everyone should know about The Weitz Company?
Weitz has executed a number of really cool aviation projects, from Google’s Hangar to the PHX Sky Train to the currently in-progress construction of the new Kansas City International Airport terminal.

Something unique or interesting about me is …
I am passionate about modern architecture and design. It all started when I was nine years old and my mom took me to see a full-scale replica of a Frank Lloyd Wright home at the Dallas Museum of Art. Some of the icons I have visited include Wright’s Fallingwater, the Stahl House by Pierre Koenig, the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe and Pavillon Le Corbusier.
