Jim started his first construction job two years out of high school and has been involved in the construction and remodeling industry ever since. Though busy learning his trade, Jim still spent time volunteering, working for nonprofits, and being in school. After graduating from EMU, already an experienced carpenter and cabinet maker, Jim cofounded Venture Builders in 1988, and took over as sole owner in 1991.
As a contractor, Jim desires to create value for his clients by pursuing integrity and fairness while always being willing to help others. He attains these goals and implements those values leading the team at Venture Builders to implement sustainable and accessible construction solutions for residential new build and remodeling projects.
