I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio, spent the first forty years of my life in the suburbs of Cleveland and Akron Ohio. Northeast Ohio is a great place to live but the winters are very harsh. I have been married for over 20 years to my wonderful wife and business partner Janine. We have two wonderful children, Justin is attending The University of Bern in Switzerland working on his Phd and Jaret is at Craven Community College Studying Cyber Security. We all love everything that has to do with water. When we are not at the business you will usually find us at our pool, on our boat, or at the beach.
Prior to moving to the area, I was self-employed in the Home Remodeling Industry. I was responsible for the following: Selling to homeowners, designing and managing crews. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and seeing my creations come to life. After being involved in a serious auto accident we decided to take a serious look at where we were at and where we really wanted to be. The harsh winters were really starting to take a toll on me and it was time to look for a warmer climate. After researching many different areas and industries we visited and fell in love with New Bern. We love the small town charm and the proximity to the ocean. Taking over this business has seemed very natural and we know that we have found a home in this industry and Eastern North Carolina.
We have been to the National trade shows for the last couple of years in Vegas and take many classes to ensure that we keep up with all of the changes and improvements with our industry. I fully believe in This Ever Changing Industry. We are always looking for ways to improve our business and our relationship with our customers.
