About this pro
I'm a technology education teacher with a minor in industrial engineering, but I like projects and remodeling. I went to nationals for cabinetry in college and have years of experience in doing different parts of construction and remodeling.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I always give clients a discount for paying in cash, as long as they mention it first before we start.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We exchange contact info, discuss the basics of the project via alternative communication means: text, email or discuss over the phone. Then we meet in person at the site the work is to take place at that way it's easy to verify that the tools and materials discussed will work for the project as we had planned. Then if there are no changes to the project, I'll submit a proposal to them with the scope of work on it for them to verify we are on the same page one last time before the work starts.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In 1999 I joined the Brotherhood of Ironworkers in Denver, Colorado ans started receiving apprenticeship training during the year I was a member. For most of the years since, I've worked for different construction companies trying to find the right area that fit my personality quirks. I tried cabinet installation companies, painters, asphalt repair, parking lot stripers, house flippers, flooring specialty contractors, decking and fencing, landscaping, and many general contractors who could do it all, and although I learned a lot, very few of them ever left me feeling satisfied. My dissatisfaction was mostly due to the fact that either the client or the construction company would want to cut corners, which I did highly disagreeable. When I know how to do something right and I'm required to NOT do it right, I would feel horrible at the end of the day. So I decided that I would look into going to college and being able to manage my own construction company so that I could do it correctly the first time. I wanted to feel good about the quality craftsmanship I put into all the work that I do. So in my mid-to-late 20s I decided to go to college. I started my tenure at Central Washington University working towards the construction management degree but, my altruistic nature ended up getting the best of me and I ended up switching majors to Technology Education. Tech. Ed. is the newer version of shop teacher, think shop teacher 2.0 or if you take your basic wood shop or metal shop teacher and you add additionall engineering concepts, skills, and methods, along with the understanding modern Technologies materials and processes like computers, Computer aided drafting, 3D modeling and printing, etc. so I end up staying in college a couple extra years and learned a lot more. I ended up graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Technology Education specializing in Construction with an Industrial Engineering Technology minor. I taught General technology education, Woodshop, and metal shop to middle schoolers and high schoolers for a couple years before I realized I couldn't get over the bureaucracy. So here I am back at it trying to get my dream Seattle Sound Construction LLC. up and running.
