As a BIM Manager for McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., I am responsible for management and implementation of McCarthy’s BIM initiatives within the Central Division, including training field personnel, monitoring BIM project execution, providing support for BIM process improvements, and performing research and development on new BIM technology. My main focus is to help project staff gain efficiency, improve quality, and increase productivity using BIM technology. After graduating from Tennessee State University with a Bachelor's degree in Architectural and Facilities Engineering, I was hired as an on-site Project Engineer. In the field I gained critical knowledge of the construction industry, and its means and methods. This knowledge allows me to provide the best solutions to my projects problems. As part of the Central Division, I provide BIM support for projects in the Midwest and Northeast regions of the country.
