The customer is everything.
Setting expectations, clear and effective communications, establishing trust, reliability, positivity, and
delivering a quality result, are all things that I strive for with each job, no matter how small.
I purchased my first home in 2001 at 27 years of age and have since owned 5 different properties varying from
a 115 year old log cabin in the woods west of Boulder, to a very large, more recently built home on the
My initial purchase was quite a learning experience. I wanted a fixer-upper, but what I ended up with was a
dwelling that needed a bulldozer more than anything else; aluminum wiring, galvanized plumbing,
deteriorating exterior brick, plaster and lathe walls, UGH! I spent the entire 12 years I owned that property,
and all of my properties since, learning so many lessons and honing my skills as a craftsman.
My favorite thing to do is tinker with things and solve problems, and that has been true my entire adult life.
I am one of those people that has a VERY hard time hiring someone to do work around my house, but there are times when that is ABSOLUTELY necessary. I am well aware of my limitations, which are many and learned (ex: masonry should be left to trained masons).
I currently own 3 properties, and co-own/manage a cabinet and furniture refinishing business with my wife; Refinishing Everything Beautiful. At REB I do all the non-paint-related tasks, which are very much handyman-types of things
On the technical side, working from home for a very small software company between 2012 and 2019, also meant that I had to figure out how to setup, and then regularly troubleshoot, my own internet, IP phone, various computers, peripherals, and smart-home devices/electronics. I've probably experienced, and resolved, just about every issue that one might encounter in a home entertainment or home office setup!
When I'm not working I love to ski, snowboard, hike, and bike, or do something with my family or our tripod dog, Hiker. I absolutely love the mountains and activities that Colorado has to offer, and look forward to everyday life continues to give me!
