The Chase Field mechanical roof is very interesting to me.

What’s the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to you on the job?

I had an approved evening appointment to show my clients a home. I rang the doorbell twice and knocked on the door twice, as I always do before opening the door. I opened the front door to find the homeowners (husband and wife) on the living room floor celebrating an offer they received earlier in the day. They were not happy about the interruption, to say the least.

I was the national champion wrestler in high school.
