I was born in Cincinnati, and was raised in Kentucky and California. While in California, I attended San Diego State University and graduated with a BA in speech communications in 1996. My first real job out of college was for Nextel communications where I was in sales then later a sales manager for MCI Direct.
I’ve been working hard the majority of my life (since 14 to help my mother pay the bills). For a long time, I worked within the food and beverage industry, where I was eventually promoted to the Food and Beverage Manager for Mammoth Mountain Ski Area. After 20 years in the food and beverage scene, I took a chance with an entirely new industry (Plumbing and HVAC) and never looked back – it was a great move.
With much success growing a company from a 500K a year business to a 15 million dollar a year division, I decided to work for myself instead of others. I wholeheartedly believe that if you treat a customer like family, and do quality work at a fair price, you’ll never go wrong! These are the values that keep me going forward, and this is why I have been able to grow into what I am today.
When I’m not with my Custom Plumbing family I enjoy classic bodybuilding. I have had the good fortune of becoming an IFBB Pro and becoming a prep and posing coach. I have met some amazing people and have had some exciting experiences in competitions around the country. I think the discipline and focus it takes to become a professional bodybuilder has really helped me to lead Custom Plumbing to being the most respected plumbing company in Arizona.
