My educational path has been one focused upon achieving understanding, and forging connections. My principle tool of communication is storytelling; to engage the imagination of the listener, form a lasting impression and an image of the end I have in sight. I have found this to be a subtle but effective strategy for not only sharing a vision, but persuading others to get on-board. Coupling these proven skills with organizations in which I deeply believe, has resulted in personal confidence and consistent achievement of goals.


I have serviced appliances from washers, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, microwave ovens, electric kilns, welding equipment, shop tools (replacement of bearings, brushes, motors, blades), electrical troubleshooting, upgrade and re- wiring (as well as new construction installation) of electrical systems, installation of lights, outlets, switches, installation troubleshooting and upgrade of low voltage systems from networking, telephone, doorbell, coaxial cable, antenna wires and the like, furnace and air conditioning troubleshooting and repair, ventilation fans and duct work, insulation, structural upgrades, repair and replacement, door and lock installation, lock repair, mastering and keying, plumbing repair and installation, toilet remediation/installation and upgrades, sinks, racks, handicap access doors, railings, specialized lighting, ramps, specialized door handles and lock systems, carpet, padding and tack strip removal and installation, water intrusion remediation, cleaning disinfecting and odor and stain removal and prevention, paint, wallpaper, trim-work, finish work, flooring repair and installation, concrete pouring/mixing/ finishing, brick-laying, etc.


Experienced with any and all hand tools, nearly all power tools. In addition, I've been trained by two leading universities in shop safety and shop power tool operation, and even transitioned into the position of training others in the proper use, care for, and operation of everything from band-saws, table saws, grinders, welders (mig, tig, stick, tack, and torch brazing), cutters (plasma, torch, punch, and power shears), sand-blasting, and even soldering.


Windows 98, XP; Macintosh OS X (all versions); Microsoft Office/Apple Office Suite; Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat; Quickbooks; Yardi Systems Property Management; Taco Html Editor. I have on several occasions adapted quickly to arbitrary time, inventory, work-order, sales, and budget tracking software, and have without fail learned them deeply and achieved proficiency in their operation.
