What do you think is the biggest challenge in your industry?

The construction industry is up against labor force challenges right now.

What is the most exciting trend you see in the Birmingham Tech Scene? 

Emerging tech companies mean bright young people are either choosing to move here, or not move away.

How do you see the Birmingham Tech Scene evolving?

We are continuing to mature as we gain traction. In the process, we will continue to see more capital will flow in.

What exciting news or product/service announcements does your company have on the horizon?

We launched a new website in September 2017, and migrated our “Beyond the Build” blog into the website just last week.

What kind of impact do you want to make with your involvement in TechBirmingham?

I hope to have a hand in the continued growth of the economy in Birmingham, which will spur even more job growth.

What advice would you give to a person starting out in your industry or in the work force?

Start slow. Generally speaking, things always take twice as long as you think to accomplish, and double the money.
