In 1976 I started CFB Contracting. Originally I remodeled homes and did home repairs. Gradually I became interested in environmental issues. Through many friendships with people in the scientific community I began to see a need to repair problems impacting streams, lakes, and rivers.
In 1992 I joined the International Erosion Control Association and began my education to change the focus of my business. In 2005 I stopped working as a remodeler and began the present business of installing cisterns, dredging ponds, stream bank repairs, and storm water / standing water issues, building and repairing Storm Water Control Measures, converting impervious surfaces.
Today I am fortunate to have twelve years of experience in the field as well as many classes at NC State University / the Biological Agricultural Engineering section. I have certificates for stream repairs, Stormwater Control Measures (known as BMP's) . I love my work because every day is a new challenge and opportunity!
I am forever grateful to my best friend and teacher Dr. Martin B. Berg at Loyola University in Chicago.
