My wife Jean and I have been Seabrookers since 2018 when we purchased a lot, designed, and built our full-time residence. We love being fully retired and enjoying life on Seabrook Island. We have developed so many wonderful new friendships! 

I feel a responsibility to maintain and enhance our island’s assets which we fell in love with the community, wildlife, beaches, marshes, maritime forest, recreational areas, and the lifestyle we all enjoy.  

 I want to contribute to the island’s thoughtful planning and development while respecting its natural environment. I feel we have an obligation to be protectors of our unique barrier island for future generations. I have had the opportunity to contribute to many wonderful organizations and causes in my career and have enjoyed my current service on the SIPOA BOD and committees. I believe I have much more to give to the Seabrook Island community.  

I am currently serving on the SIPOA BOD to fill a vacated term. I am a member of the Architectural Review Committee and the Vice-Chair. I am also on the Safety & Security Committee and serve as the Chair. I served on the SI Club Operations Committee until joining the SIPOA BOD. 

In my 40-year career with Beck, I was active in the Architectural-Engineering-Construction industry. Most recently I served as the Co-Chair of the Joint Committee of the American Institute of Architects and Associated General Contractors, I also served on the EBD of the National Associated General Contractors. 

I have served on multiple community boards including the BOG of the Buckhead Club, which is a part of Club Corp, the Distinguished Clown Corp which raised over $1M for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. I recently served on the BOD for Children’s Evangelical Fellowship which sponsors Good News Clubs. I also have been the president of two Church Councils as well as chairman of two church building committees. 

Beck is a design and construction firm with offices across the southern US and Mexico with annual revenues over $1B. My career at Beck started in the field and ultimately included management of over 35 projects ranging from $1M to $350M. I held 17 different positions, with four of them in the C suite (CEO, CMO, CTO, CTDO). I have been an owner/partner for the past 15 years and most recently the CEO of Beck International which included living two years in Mexico City, a wonderful experience.  

I am a graduate of Iowa State University and spent two years studying architecture before receiving my B.S. in Civil Engineering.  

I believe my professional experience, as well as my leadership skills, have prepared me to effectively serve in many roles for SIPOA.
