Born and raised outside Detroit, MI, Ed graduated from the University of Colorado. Ed moved to Seattle in 1993 with his wife, Julie. Before Build Urban he gained relevant experience in mortgage banking, construction financing, commercial and retail development, land acquisition, and infill development. He began building with a small Tacoma remodel then moved from new single family homes to larger homes, townhouses, row homes, and apartment buildings.
Ed loves to see a project go from raw land to completed structure. His excitement for work comes from all the human interactions that happen throughout building homes and our company. Building people a better place to live brings him a great sense of accomplishment.
Outside of development, Ed enjoys spending time with Julie and their four kids – skiing, golf, hunting, cooking, travelling. Time with family and friends can’t be beat.
