D.J. comes to American Heritage Homes with a diverse career background and a multi-faceted skill set. From owning his own successful business to management of multi-million-dollar retail stores, D.J. bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the American Heritage Homes team.
In 1996, D.J. started his construction career at an entry level position with Tuff Shed, the largest shed and garage business in the country. D.J.’s talent for motivating others was quickly discovered and he was promoted into management, becoming the youngest individual to hold the position of General Manager at that time. D.J. attributes his successful move to management directly to the great mentorship he received and to his own personal drive for success / “can’t lose attitude”. He is profoundly grateful for the leadership he was given and loved any challenge that was offered to him
In 2013, D.J. partnered with his family to begin a construction company that specialized in smaller construction projects. Projects were built both locally and statewide. The business ran successfully for 5 years, constructing a wide array of projects including sheds, barns, garages, pergolas, mini cabins and tiny homes. With a young growing family, D.J. made the decision to pursue an opportunity that would allow him to stay closer to home while bringing his diverse background and love for building to the residential homebuilding industry.
D.J. married his beautiful wife Jessica in 2003. Their life revolves around their 3 handsome boys, David III, Carter and Graham. All boys play soccer and some may call them one of those “CRAZY SOCCER FAMILES” since they tend to spend most of their vacation time traveling to Soccer tournaments. When not in soccer season, D.J. and his family enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, cliff diving, and playing in the dirt with dirt toys (of course!) Family time is D.J.’s favorite time…his wife and boys are his everything.
