Scott Julian

Chief Operations Officer

It might be surmised that Scott Julian has spent much of his life preparing for the duties he currently performs at Lewis Builders. As a certified specialist in the concept of Aging in Place, Julian has special expertise in providing innovations that help people with special needs live safely, comfortably, and with greater independence in their own homes, rather than transitioning into assisted-living situations. Julian's passion for his work is very personal, inspired by a younger brother who waged a courageous battle with brain cancer that necessitated a nine-month hospital stay, followed by a long rehabilitation requiring an army of home healthcare professionals, medical equipment, and supplies. ``With my mother's unwavering care and expertise, the comfortable homecare environment offered him the best possible recovery we could have imagined,`` Julian says. ``This opened my eyes to the power of healing and being in your own home. I now help my clients make home design and remodel choices that meet their current and future needs without compromising design and integrity .. because there is no place like home!`` Such compassion and depth of understanding make Scott Julian an invaluable asset to Lewis Builders and the clients he serves.

Tammy Lewis

Chief Administrative Officer

When Tammy first joined Lewis Builders 5 years ago, she immediately rolled up her sleeves and dove in. From assisting with business ownership to creating marketing strategies to managing HR and accounting, Tammy put her heart into every aspect of the business she worked on. Like her fellow team members at Lewis Builders, Tammy gives it her all when it comes to bringing clients’ dreams to life.

While she enjoys many aspects of the construction process, her favorite part is watching her husband, John, completely transform a living space with his vision and design skills. After the birth of their two sons, her role has evolved, allowing her to dedicate her passion and extraordinary skills to marketing, special projects, and HR.

When she’s not hard at work, Tammy can be found hiking, golfing, paddle boarding and traveling abroad with her family. She loves including her two young sons in as many of these amazing experiences as possible.

Damien Georis

Planning Manager

Wine and design are two things Damien has in common with founder and CEO John Lewis. After meeting, they both knew they were destined to work together.

Damien, at the tender age of 13, decided to become a winemaker. At age 16, he took a summer job as a construction worker. He did that every summer for seven years. “I have always been interested in architecture and design,” says the Belgian native. “This may be what I would have done if I had not gotten the wine bug.”

At age 22, he graduated with a master’s degree in agricultural engineering specializing in crop protection in Gembloux, Belgium and two years later graduated from Bordeaux University in Bordeaux, France with a degree in oenology.

He put the construction side of his skills on the back burner while he plunged into the world of wine and winemaking. Before moving to the Monterey Peninsula in 2005, Damien spent two years as winemaker at Chateau Nenin, in Pomerol, France and five years as winemaker at Chateau Olivier, in Leognan, France.

After arriving here, he became the winemaker at Georis Winery and Cowgirl Winery in Carmel Valley, which he worked for 11 years before becoming a consultant to the wineries in 2017. Although he has the Georis name, he’s not related to the Georis restaurant and winemaking family.

Damien is also currently winemaker for his own label, Madeleine Wines, and imports Belgian ale.

His building and design side came back when he purchased and remodeled a home in Monterey in 2011 and did the same in 2013 in Seaside. Becoming a design assistant at Lewis Builders brings him full circle.

“I’m really excited to learn more and be a part of a great team,” he says. “What I like about Lewis Builders is that they take a more modern approach to design and build. John's style is very close to my style, clean and uncluttered.”

Jeremy McCullough

Pre-Construction Manager

When it comes to experience in the construction industry, Jeremy McCullough has a leg up over most people. “I’ve been on job sites since I was 6 years old.” says McCullough, who recently joined Lewis Builders as its Pre-Construction Manager. “My dad and my uncle were both builders, carpenters and heavy equipment operators, so I spent my summers working on a job site.” Born and raised in Fresno County, McCullough naturally went right into the construction trade after high school, working jobs as far away as Alaska. He moved to Humboldt County 20 years ago and worked at Alchemy Construction Inc., first as a carpenter, then as a foreman and then as principal designer. Along the way he picked up some design software and taught himself the intricacies of designing, using his long experience as a builder to help him learn. “I was surprisingly good at it,” he says. After 17 years at Alchemy, McCullough and his wife Jamie, who grew up in Pacific Grove, decided to move to the Monterey Peninsula so their kids could grow up closer to their grandparents and cousins in her hometown. Fast forward and McCullough contributes to the team as Pre-Construction Manager. In simple terms, he makes the instruction manual for the field teams to build the structural shell of a house or project. And he does it with expert experience and style.

Executive Admin

Richard Morf

Project Manager

It was inevitable that Lewis Builders Project Manager Richard Morf would return to work and live in Carmel.

A native of Modesto, California, Rich spent time as a project manager in the Bay Area for several years, but he must have known he would eventually end up here when he purchased a home in Carmel in 2010.

Rich, a licensed real estate salesperson and certified real estate appraiser, worked as a senior project manager with Jones Lang LaSalle in San Francisco in 2016-2017, and prior to that for eight years as Project Asset Manager, Real Estate Owned Division of Wells Fargo Bank in Oakland.

He also spent four years as Regional Appraisal Manager for World Savings Bank in Modesto, as well as stints as an executive recruiter and Regional Chief Appraiser in the Bay Area.

His brother-in-law was an appraiser in Modesto and when Rich was trying to determine what he wanted to do with his life, he took a chance and in his early 20s became a full-time appraiser. Now residential remodeling is his passion.

“Lewis Builders is a small company that is run with large, successful company ideas,” he says. “They have a plan and are prepared for any contingency when it comes to the economy.”

His spare time is taken up with his two border collies and his horse, which he rides often. He also loves cars, which makes Carmel the perfect place for him to live.

Ryan Loustalet

Project Manager

Lewis Builders Project Manager Ryan Loustalet has done a lot of traveling around the world and had lived in Canada for the past four years, but he feels he’s found a permanent home on the Monterey Peninsula.

Ryan, who was born and raised in San Diego, wanted to get back to California, so decided to work with his cousin Kenny, a partner at Lewis Builders. So with family here, he moved to the Peninsula with his partner and soon-to-be wife, Katelyn.

He attended San Diego City College trade school and has been trained as an electrician, but he’s also spent time as a project manager and site manager for commercial building sites, which made him a good fit for Lewis Builders.

“I enjoy working with Lewis Builders because of the team energy and morale,” he says. “I enjoy everyone’s work ethic and their desire to grow the company and make it more efficient. Everyone’s trying to improve the company.”

In his spare time, Ryan enjoys mountain biking, hiking and yoga and looks forward to tying the knot with his partner, who he met while traveling in India and Nepal, at the end of the year in 2014.

Kristina Joy Honda

Design Manager

Kristina Joy Honda has always wanted to work in the design industry, but life has a way of putting up detours in the best of plans. But life also has a way of bringing things full circle, so now she is back on a path that matches her original goals.

Joy (she uses her middle name to avoid confusion with office manager Christie) is now the Design Manager with Lewis Builders after starting as Design Coordinator in August 2018.

“I was so thrilled to see that this job was available,” she says. “It’s wonderful to be back in the industry I’ve always been interested in being a part of. I’ve always felt this is where I was meant to be.”

A native of Wyoming, Joy attended both University of Northern Colorado and the University of Wyoming, she first got interested in design while working for a general contractor in Washington state. That inspired her to move to Southern California to attend the Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach, California. “I went to the sun to study design,” she says.

In addition to attending the institute, she also worked for an architect who specialized in commercial and restaurant design, which further stoked her interest in design.

Her personal interests include photography, performing arts, film, travel, cooking, water sports, sculpture and painting. She’s also the author/illustrator of a children’s book app.

Tiffany Gutierrez

Estimate Manager

They say things happen for a reason, and for Tiffany Gutierrez that certainly rings true.

Tiffany, the Estimate Manager for Lewis Builders since late 2018, says she “fell into the construction industry” several years ago, even though she had a degree in kinesiology and also worked as a movement specialist for post-rehab patients. But the construction industry called her back.

“It’s a very exciting business and I really love the role I’m in,” she says. “I love working with all the subcontractors. Every day is different and every company is different and it’s exciting to learn new things. I mean it sounds nerdy, but I love plan sets (blueprints) and want to learn more about them.”

As the Estimate Manager Tiffany works closely with subcontractors in coming up with reliable estimates for various projects so the subcontractors can make accurate bids. She did similar work for several years at Scudder Roofing in Marina.

Tiffany is a native of Salinas, where she graduated from Notre Dame High School. She also attended Cal State Fullerton and San Francisco State where she majored in dance, before returning to the area to get a degree in Kinesiology from CSU Monterey Bay.

At Lewis Builder, You're Family.
