I have forty years of contracting experience in the greater Puget Sound having provided a wide range of services including cleaning, disaster restoration and environmental cleanup. I was self employed for thirty years and sold my disaster restoration business in 2003 to COIT Cleaning & Restoration, a national franchisor. I have extensive experience in project management, operations, finance, and sales and marketing as well as having worked in the public sector.
Some examples of the higher profile projects and clients include Columbia Center, the Boeing Company and the UW Horticulture Building which was bombed by the Earth Liberation Front.
I was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana and attended public schools through high school. I graduated with a BA in Business from Indiana University in 1971.
