I have 34 years of service in and with the United States Army and served the last twenty in Special Operations Forces. I began framing houses and roofing in High School and throughout my career in the military spent countless hours performing all phases of remodeling homes in my spare time. I have always had an eye for design and a heart for helping others. My desire to help “the least of these” has lead to advanced construction skills development through Habitat for Humanity projects and working alongside professional contractors building multiple Churches from the ground up across the Navajo Nation.
One quality military life taught me was to be in the right place, at the right time, with the right tools, and to get the job done right. The other was to have a keen eye for attention to detail and to not settle for anything less than giving your best. I was blessed to be born intellectually curious and one of my earliest memories as a child was a family friend who gave me a box full of broken transistor radios and said, “See if you can get them to work.” I repaired them and then I sold them to buy tools. Many of my friends and family would describe me as a Renaissance Man. There are very few things I have seen other professionals do that I felt I couldn’t learn to do myself with the ultimate goal of adding another tool to my tool box while saving myself time and money. I have also learned great life lessons cleaning up countless hack jobs performed by other so called “Handymen.”
Have you ever been frustrated because you had to call the plumber for one small job, the electrician for another, a carpenter for a third and after paying premium rates you are still left with a list of things that need to be done? Calling a professional handyman is like one-stop shopping. Your list of needed repairs becomes a thing of the past and you can finally relax. Let me help you cross those things off your honey-do list. There are a multitude of things that I do very well that will save you money, but one of the most important skills I have is giving the customer my best work and knowing when to say “no I don’t do that.” There are times that you will need to call another specialized service person, but far less frequently and the difference will translate into a major savings for you. I also maintain a referral list of local professionals who I know personally by the quality of their service when those rare instances arise.
