I came to the US in June of 1979, graduated from Washougal High and attended Clark College. I have been working at Area Heating since 1988. I enjoy traveling and gardening.
I am a native to Clark County and started working at Area Heating right out of high school in 1988. I have 3 sons John 25, Jordan 23, and Jason 10. I also finally got a girl! My granddaughter Jade! I enjoy hiking, camping, boating and time with my family!
I've been in the HVAC industry since 2006. Things I appreciate about this career is being able to meet the community, help customers, diagnosing a problem and being able to fix it! I'm a proud husband and father of 2. I enjoy bowling and being on the water as soon as the weather warms up.
I started this journey in HVAC as a duct cleaner moved into service then promoted to sales. I truly enjoy the everyday challenges that this position brings and the great people I meet! I am an avid lover of dogs, music, and billiards. I am married to my soulmate of 16 years, a father to two daughters, and one son. In my off time I enjoy playing pool and spending time in nature whether it's hiking, camping, or exploring what the beautiful northwest has to offer.
I started in the HVAC business with Area, December 1996. I spent the first 12 years doing high end custom home installations in New Construction as well as replacement equipment installations in existing homes.
The last eight years my focus has been new technology, building science, indoor air quality and more efficient duct designs for homes. I'm always looking to push the envelope in unique designs and stretching the capabilities of new technology to better improve people’s indoor comfort and quality of life. I do not consider myself an expert in the field, but rather, well educated. The day I consider myself an expert is the day I will retire, as I will have nothing new to learn each day.
I went to school at Apex Senior High in Apex, North Carolina. While I enjoyed my time in school I wanted to jump straight into the work force. After visiting a local job agency I was pointed in the direction of a commercial HVAC company and have been in the industry ever since.
I had been doing primarily residential HVAC when I joined the Area Heating team back in 2007. I was impressed with the quality of the work being done and the quality of the people at Area. I have never regretted my decision to work here and have learned a lot along the way. As a Comfort Consultant I am focused on providing the best service that I possibly can for the people I get to meet every day. I am excited about current and new technologies in the industry and have an extensive installation and service background that helps me better serve our clients.
I have been married to my best friend since 2000, we have 2 children. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends.
I love to work with my hands. I ride my motorcycle whenever I can. I'm always busy chasing my son around and taking pictures of the PNW.
