A Kansas City native, Canaan grew up in the family business of residential construction, earning his degree in business administration from Emporia State University. Quickly upon graduation, the after-hour practice of historic renovation and real estate investment became a full-time passion.
With over 10 years experience in the construction industry, Canaan’s responsibilities at Scovell focus on determining the structural and financial feasibility of the proposed plan, bringing balance to the design team while also assisting the production team with project timelines.
Canaan and his wife Sarah reside in Kansas City, Kansas in a house built in 1900 that they renovated together. They enjoy escaping to the Ozarks over the weekends. If he is not floating or renovating, you may see him up in the sky, flying his paramotor.
“It’s nice working at a place where you do it right every time. There are no quick flips, and there is attention to quality throughout the entire process. It’s also nice knowing that you have the opportunity to be heard and really make a difference while growing with a company that is always looking to improve well into the future.”
