Chicago grown

"Being part of projects impacting my home here in the Chicago area is something I take pride in. It’s a pretty rewarding feeling being able to look at some of these massive projects and tell my kids, ‘Hey-- I helped build this and because of it, people are getting to where they need to go faster"
