I’ve always loved building things and working on houses. At a young age I started helping my dad work and do projects around the house. When I was in high school I took a two year remodeling program at Central Campus and through our church participated in multiple working mission trips to help remodel and rebuild communities in several different states.

I had the opportunity to gain a lot of experience working with a new home builder in the area for a couple of years, and then helping run our family remodeling business for several years.  My building experience comes from both residential and commercial.   Like my dad, serving people and teaching them about homes is my passion. 

My wife Amanda and I have three children. We live in Urbandale, worship and serve at Lutheran Church of Hope-Waukee, and I enjoy working on home projects, flipping some properties, golf and spending time with my family. I love to learn and am constantly looking at ways to improve our skills as home inspectors in Des Moines.
