A Bit About Me

Civil Engineering is in my blood; my father and four older brothers are all in the same field. Outside of work you can typically find me in the stands cheering on my three kids at their sporting events (basketball, baseball, soccer, karate, boy scouts, the list goes on). Any remaining free time is spent woodworking, tackling home projects and cheering for University of Illinois football.

Current Role

Matt is responsible for managing all aspects of construction projects, from preconstruction through project closeout.

Matt has 21 years of experience in construction management on roadway, bridge and railroad projects in the greater Chicago area.
