Personal Bio

As Project Superintendent at Abbott Construction with over 30 years of construction project management and safety experience, Michael has gained an acute understanding of the safety challenges that projects can face. As Safety Officer, he plans and coordinates on site safety operations and services for all tasks being performed to ensure that a safe, healthy and accident-free work environment is always maintained.

Michael attained Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) certification from the University of Washington and the University of South Florida/OSHA Training Institute and Education Center. He has had the opportunity to work with clients such as Federal Aviation Administration, Joint Base Lewis-McChord – Naval Station Kitsap/Bangor/Whidbey (USACE, NAVFAC, MARFORRES and GSA) and the University of San Francisco.

Outside of Abbott, Michael enjoys spending time with family and hanging out with the guys. He also likes to work on his small farm and restore his turn-of-the-century farm house, backpacking, mountain biking hunting and fishing.

Abbott's work was performed on-time, on-budget and ultimately resulted in a world-class facility not only for the making of whiskey, but also sharing the whiskey making process with our customers.
