I was born and raised in Indiana and met my wife of 23 years, Heidi, at Indiana University where we both studied business. My early career was spent working in jobs for large corporations in Indiana and then in Southern California. After the birth of our two boys, we decided to move to a place more family-friendly and so we moved to the Portland area and just fell in love with it.
After exiting the corporate world and running several small businesses of my own I decided to become a member of the CertaPro family and bought our local franchise. Being my own boss gives me and my wife control of our time and allows us to do things like making it to sporting events involving our kids. The goal was getting a good work/life balance and now we are able to be involved with the community and enjoy all that the area has to offer. We think the Portland area is a great place to live and raise a family and we enjoy providing a needed service to our neighbors in the form of house painting.
If I had to sum up my basic business philosophy it would be simple – be honest, don’t overpromise, and always deliver.
