Work Experience

  • Self-Employed

    2007-1990 | remodel and repair contractor

    During my formative years in the trades, I was trying to learn everything I'd need to know to build my own home. I followed work from the Midwest to the northwest to Georgia. I worked for ten years from San Francisco to Bellingham, WA on referrals from clients and friends of clients who had seen my work. I've always strived to improve my craft, to become more competent and professional with each project. My reputation among those who have hired me is one of delivering what I promise within the budget of the project. I don't cut corners or try to save a buck by shortchanging the client or the job..

    Initially, I went to work to take over a project converting a warehouse space into a corporate conference room.

I managed all the subcontractors, performed all plumbing and electrical from rough to finish, did all the specialty framing, all trim, cabinet modifications, and built ins.

  • Self-Employed


    I contract repair and remodel work in the San Luis Valley. I've also worked down on the Conejos river down the hill from Chama, NM. I go where the work is.


  • University of Missouri, Columbia


    I left college when the Social Work school lost its accreditation. Though I didn't return to college, the experience and initial love of learning has served me well in the trades. My communication skills are sometimes the cause of ridicule from fellow tradesmen but allow me to develop an excellent rapport with clients, subs, and suppliers. Communication has proven to be the key to ongoing success in dealing with difficult situations with hard to please clients.
