David Rynes - VP, Project Development

David was born into an entrepreneurial spirit, starting work at a young age in his family’s business – an amusement park – just outside of Chicago.  He further cultivated his work ethic, leadership skills, and engineering background in Annapolis, MD, at the United States Naval Academy.  During that time, he also met his beautiful wife, Adrienne, on a blind date.  After a relocation to Adrienne’s home town, David started his own residential construction business, where he further applied his skill set toward creating stunning homes.  After over a decade of running his own business, David and his family decided it was time to fulfill their long time goal of living in the mountains of Colorado, and joined the team in the Summer of 2018.
