My family and I have been part of the Berkeley community for 22 years. You may run into me around the neighborhood or on my skateboard at the Emeryville skate park.

A stellar reputation is important to us. I want to always be able to hold my head up high as I walk down the street with my family. You’re not just my clients, but you’re my neighbors, my friends, my community. Running into clients from years ago who shake my hand, only confirms that we are doing something right. I like the way businesses were built in the old days, when a person’s work and word was everything. When men like my father were successful because of their hard work and integrity. In the days before the internet, if you were not recommended by a friend, you just didn’t work. I appreciate all positive reviews, but I always love it when I hear that a friend has recommended me.

I believe the old proverb, ‘it takes a village.’ I grew up in a very strong community and learned that without one, we are left to the wolves.  I want to continue helping to keep the wolves at bay!
