I am life-long Washington State native that has lived in Bellingham my whole life. I grew up surrounded by the construction industry with a plumbing contractor grandfather, pipefitter father, architect uncle, and other family members in the trades. School was my passion in my younger years and I did not plan on being a tradesperson, but rather work as an educator or in the growing tech field of the 1980’s. I had an opportunity to do some painting in the summers between school years and decided to quite college and build my own painting and landscaping business.
Over the years I have moved on to more skills such as drywall and carpentry. I have also employed 100’s of tradespeople during the last 30 years and have had up to 50 employees at one time. I have worked all over western Washington doing all types of projects in homes, schools, hospitals, refineries, malls, and much more. Several years ago I also started an online business buying and selling new and used surplus goods, which I now consider a hobby more than a business. I enjoy spending time with my family, cross-fitting, and eating great food. The last several years I have settled into having a small construction business with two to four employees that I work with on a daily basis in the field.
When I started looking into ShelfGenie I was greatly impressed by the quality of the product and the manner the local ShelfGenie operates their business. I am excited to be a part of the ShelfGenie of Seattle team as it is a perfect fit for my skills and knowledge.
