About Me

From childhood I’ve had a knack for fixing things. Growing up on a farm was a fertile environment for raising a budding handyman! My enjoyment of developing and honing new skills continues to this day.

My experience in the trades and service industry started in 1985. I began in a plumbing related field, then partnered with my dad as a framing subcontractor to serve a variety of General Contractors building new homes. In addition to new homes, I added home renovation, the duties of a working Field Superintendent and all-around right-hand man for a General Contractor lasting nearly a decade. He has remained a mentor throughout my life.

This led to a construction management position for a non-profit where I coordinated a variety of talented professionals and contractors to renovate and construct new homes. Having experience in the field I would occasionally fill the gaps in talent or schedule with my own skills. From a career in construction, I understand the details of how your home is put together and how to deliver your home projects to a professional standard.

If you’re in need of a professional handyman to wrangle your home’s to do list or to help you with the upgrades you’re preparing for, then please contact me and let me know how I can help. I take satisfaction in a job well done and would love to bring my talents and experience to your home! I’d like to think that you will find in my company the solution to your home care needs and upgrades for the future. I greatly appreciate your business and your referrals. If you like my work, please share me with your friends. Everyone needs a good handyman.

The most common nickname used by others to describe me is “MacGyver.” I can often find solutions to challenging problems based on my God-given talents and creative problem-solving skills.

The most common question asked when a person sees one of my latest creations, “Are you an engineer?”
