About the Owner
I grew up in the small town of Prescott Arizona! I have been in the industry all my life. I am a fourth generation tin bender. My nickname growing up was “ Tin Knocker”, this was because I was always pounding on or building something out of sheet metal.
My great grandparents owned a sheet metal and heating shop in Oklahoma. My grandfather got HVAC experience while serving in the Army, once he retired out he continued working in this field. My father worked in the field to start until he transitioned into the wholesale side of the business. He has successfully grown his company to be one of the largest wholesale suppliers of plumbing, electrical, and HVAC in the country.
My journey began while playing in the warehouse, then I offered to clean my father’s friends sheet metal shop for extra money. By the time I was 14, I started helping them make sheet metal fittings after school while I also kept the shop cleaned and organized. this later turned into me becoming and installer. I worked my way up from being an install helper to the lead installer. I was an installer for 8 years installing in existing residential as well as new construction and also light commercial.
In 2002 I moved to California and found employment with a small mom and pop shop working out of Concord. This is where I began a Comfort Advisor role. This led to me becoming the sale manager. We successfully ran that company for the next 4 years. Then the opportunity came for me to step back into field work as a service technician. I have been in this field for the last 10 years and grew to be a service advisor training other people to expand their knowledge of the industry.
All of this experience and knowledge is what has led me to follow in my families footsteps and open the doors at Certified Heating and Air Conditioning. I do this with a strong passion to help other people grow and change their lives at the same time changing the lives of the people we service.
