He initially had no intention of becoming a Board Member, however, with his engineering skills and facilities maintenance knowledge, the Board approached him. After being elected, he happily volunteered his time to better his community. This experience gave him insight on how his clients must think relative to prioritizing repairs and the needs of the condominium.
