Your Master Inspector

It’s been said that we will never be able to download knowledge, because knowledge takes experience. Mine started growing up on a small dairy farm in Duchesne, Utah. As is typical of farm life, if it was to be done we were the ones to do it and I learned from my Dad and Grandpa the construction trades while building add-ons, remodeling and maintaining 3 old homes.  Circumstances took us off the farm and into the suburbs of Salt Lake where I helped my Dad remodel and add on to several other homes we lived in.

I ended up attending the University of Utah where I studied Exercise Physiology while also taking my prerequisites for med school. I needed to figure out if that was really the path I wanted so I took a break for a year and got my Real Estate license and later started a small home inspection business called Assurance Inspections, which helped me get back to school where I graduated with a  Bachelors degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from The University of Utah. I jumped at an opportunity to move to New York City for 3 years where I was a field engineer for Kiewit on a tunnel under the Harlem River and the 2nd Avenue Subway line.

I decided New York City wasn’t for me and I moved to Denver where I worked as Project Engineer for the Airport Westin Hotel and Transit Center for 3 years. The past 4 years I’ve worked in various positions on apartment buildings across Denver, most recently as a Project Manager on a 337 unit building downtown. My 7 years of experience working on large hotels and apartments and my time remodeling my own homes has given me a broad range of knowledge in integrating Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Structural Systems

Owning and working on several of my own homes has been it’s own learning experience and I know what it can mean to a family budget when components fail and there are costly maintenance requirements. I want to connect one on one with people so they can rest easy knowing they are fully informed. I want to help people maintain their home while giving them the knowledge they need to live with one of life’s biggest investments.
