“I am new to the restoration industry, although I started with Kennedy Feb 2nd 2015 I have been working in the construction industry for 13 years, mostly in commercial and residential HVAC and for the last 5 ½ years working in solar construction.

I really enjoy the different types of work that come with restoration. All the details that go into having to take something apart and putting it all back together again has been a great learning experience. Working at Kennedy has really helped me discover new areas of Portland that I might not normally ever get to see.

Being offered a career at Kennedy was the major push for moving to Portland. I have family that lives here and whenever my wife (Rachel O’Rourke) and I would go visit for the holidays, we would always talk about the idea of moving here someday.  I have always enjoyed this city for all that has to offer for our four kids.

When I’m not working, I like to spend as much time outside as I can: taking the family and our dogs to one of the hundreds of great hiking places nearby, running, lifting weights, camping, and snowboarding. We are a very active family. There are so many great outdoor places to explore so close to Portland!”

I have been working in the restoration industry for 27 years.  I was an insurance adjuster for 11 years and have been an Estimator/Project Manager for 16 years now.  I enjoy working in this industry because I sincerely enjoy helping people.  I find it gratifying to know that I have helped someone through something such as a catastrophic loss to their homes, businesses or personal property.

 

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and have never worked outside of Oregon.  I am a true Native Oregonian and very proud of it!

 

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, especially at the Race Track!  I am part of a racing team, where we race late model and IMCA Modified cars on dirt tracks every weekend from April till November, all over the Northwest.

I am also a huge sports fan, with NFL/College football being my favorite sport to watch on TV.  As a result, I am involved in a few different Fantasy Football leagues.  I cherish time outdoors in this beautiful state, and try to spend as much time as possible enjoying it, every way I can.
