more about me

time to learn a bit about me!

Short Bio

Arete Construction Services is veteran owned and operated. Our unique niche is new & historic masonry plus carpentry services. We are also specialists in chimney & fireplace saftey. Our principal areas of expertise are with hardscapes, outdoor spaces, basements, additions, and excavation work including snow and tractor work. No job is too large nor too small, so you can also call on us for your Handyman Services.

From the start of my professional journey as a laborer on a masonry crew in the mid 90’s I grew to appreciate the craftsmanship of the stonemasons who were teaching me the trade. I moved up from laborer to mason, learning all I could along the way. Primarily because of this apprenticeship journey, I am now skilled as a Master Mason. Eager to continue learning the construction trades, I then transitioned from masonry to carpentry. Over the past 25 years, I continued to grow and I have led drywall crews, framing crews, masonry crews, landscape and hardscape crews. I have even been involved in building complete houses from start to finish. In each endeavor, I have learned a great deal and honed the skills I now have as Arete Construction Services.

Born and raised in Loudoun county, I believe in being family oriented and giving back to the community. I have two children who are active in sports and I help coach their football team.

I am a veteran and I continue to give back to the community through several veteran volunteer organizations.
