After graduating from high school, I spent four years at a Walmart distribution before transitioning to a Lowes distribution, where I worked for 13 years. During my time there, I dedicated over 11+ years to honing my skills in IT while simultaneously engaging in construction work on the side.

After leaving Lowes, I committed to full-time construction work, starting with a four-year tenure at 1st Choice. Subsequently, I ventured out independently as a small contractor. This path led me to a significant opportunity as a local county building inspector, a role I fulfilled for 5.5 years.

My career took an unexpected turn when Brandon Mills, the son of 1st Choice's founders, approached me. I assumed ownership in March 2023. Although the business remains family-owned, I'm now at the helm as a trusted friend of the original owner.

Aside from my professional endeavors, I've been happily married for 26 years. My family includes two children: Reece, aged 22, who recently joined the business to learn and contribute to sales, and Emilee, aged 18.
