I received my degree in Accounting in 1983 from Virginia Commonwealth University. After working in such positions as an auditor for Food Lion, LLC then developing and growing a division for MicroMagnetic, Inc, an office supply and technology company, I was recruited by Xerox Corporation where I worked my way quickly into a senior level manager.  I then decided to take what I learned from my many years of experience and training in corporate America to build a business of my own. After reviewing many different franchises, CertaPro stood out as one that aligned most closely with my sales and business background, as well as my core values.

Having recently relocated to Myrtle Beach with my wife, Robin and living close to my three adult children, I am proud to offer you guaranteed professional, reliable, and quality service.  I have vacationed here in Myrtle Beach and the surrounding area for over 30 years and always knew I would eventually settle here.  I know the community well and love it very much. My goal for my business is to offer you, my client, professional service while positively contributing to the community due to hurricanes/flooding and leave a legacy for my children at the same time.  In a sense, I want to “pay it forward” to all of you here in our community.

Our slogan at CertaPro is, “We do paint, you do life”.  Together with my wife, we have added for our wonderful area, “Improving the beach, one house at a time”. I look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.
