Born to a general contractor father, Stephen caught the construction bug early. At 13, he spent his days picking up trash and cleaning job sites–all the while watching and learning from the other workers on site.
For the past fifteen years, Stephen has worked his way up the industry ladder- from grunt worker to the president of his own general contracting company: Optima Construction.
Whether it is an insurance claim repair or remodeling of a kitchen, Stephen and his team’s experience is second to none. Just read some of the testimonials and you’ll quickly see that Optima is not your average contracting company.
Before going out on his own, Stephen worked for the top restoration and repair companies in the U.S. and brings an extensive knowledge to the table. More importantly, he brings unique and out of the box thinking to each and every job he takes on. In addition, Stephen has worked on everything from large commercial developments to small residential renovations. In short, no project is too big or too small for Optima Construction.
When he’s not on the job site, Stephen enjoys surfing at his local breaks. He is close with his friends and family and is an amateur chef.
Stephen has strong beliefs that communication is the starting point of all great business relationships and he encourages anyone interested in his services to drop him a line here. He and his team at Optima Construction look forward to working with you!
