I started in this industry in 1999. I graduated from the Universal Technical Institute with honors in HVAC controls and energy management.

I immediately went to work in the commercial field and made the transition to residential in 2010 with A1 Heating. I love working with people and a good challenge.

I’ve spent the vast majority of my professional life in the golf industry. This has been a natural transition for me because much of that past life is based on customer service and attention to details. Those attributes are very important to me and have come in very handy with my time at A1 heating. I love working with A1 heating because they share the same passion that I do. I anticipate our meeting and look forward to the opportunity to serve you initially and for many years to come.

In 2007 I became a salesman for the company and have been doing this ever since. I really enjoy the interaction with all the customers that I have the opportunity to get to know! I have received salesman of the year four times now. I am HVAC certified, Industrial refrigeration certified, RETA certified, and welding certified.

I enjoy fishing, camping, boating, Snowmobiling and hunting with my family!
