Here is what my customers can expect from me: First and foremost, my customers can expect that I am honest and friendly. I will always give them honest information, work for them with their best interests in mind, and do a quality job for them. My customers can also expect me to be knowledgeable and trust the information I am giving them.
This is what I enjoy from the work that I do: I thoroughly enjoy helping customers to efficiently solve their immediate issues in their home and give them peace-of-mind that their emergency has been taken care of. I really like seeing a project, like a bathroom remodel, come together into an awesome finished product that our customer will enjoy for years to come. I have a great sense of satisfaction knowing they are pleased in my work.

My “bucket list”: N/A
Favorite quote or saying: I heard this quote in church (Pastor Jason Houck) very recently and it has become my new favorite quote! It is: “What you fear the most reveals where you put your faith in God the least.”. I really liked this quote because I thought about this saying in relation to my life. I realized that the areas that I am holding back generally are reflective of the areas that I am fearful of. But, I also know that God is bigger than whatever that fear is, so I should push forward!
Favorite book, podcast, or movie: N/A
Values that drive me: Jesus taught that the two greatest commandments are to love God and love your neighbor as yourself. If I practice those two principles in my own life, then things like honesty, integrity, patience, and other values people look for in others will be a part of who I am.
Others describe you as: My wife says that I am sincere, genuine, and put others first. I also have a more laid-back and easy-going demeanor.
