After graduating from high school in 1971 I attended North Texas State University. After college I began my career in the construction industry. It is here that I learned all of the in’s-and-out’s of house framing, concrete pouring, roofing, painting, and other facets of new construction. I began to specialize in roofing (commercial roofing, residential roofing, re-roofing, wood shingle, slate, tile & built up flat roofs). I worked on several framing projects during this season of my life, establishing relationships with several prominent builders in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area. I was a journeyman in the Plasters Union, and in the Carpenters Union.
In 1988 I reopened All Seasons Roofing and Remodeling and engaged in various room additionsroofing and other remodeling projects. I managed roofing crews while subcontracting work from various roofing companies in Kentucky.
It was in 1998 I founded AFS Contractor, Inc., and sold and installed re-roofs and re-siding jobs on hail damaged residences and businesses. I then became a State Licensed roofing and general contractor in Minnesota. It was then that I opened a branch office for AFS Contractor, Inc., in Indiana.
I then became a state licensed Class A General Contractor in Virginia. It was at this point that I was sent by the insurance companies to adjust claims and perform the restoration on hail damaged residences and businesses.
I founded ACO Restoration, Co., and engaged in re-roofing and re-siding hail damaged residences and businesses in Omaha and Kearney, Nebraska, and Coucil Bluffs, Iowa. Afterwhich, I became a state licensed Home Improvement Contracter in Tennessee. It was here that I worked on re-roofing and re-siding hail damaged residences and businesses under the name Roof-Tech. I opened satellite offices for Roof-Tech in Columbus and Canton, Ohio and serviced clients until 2004.
In 2004 I became a general manager for JBH Roofing & Constructors in Florida and managed their storm restoration division in Orlando, Pensacola and surrounding areas following Hurricane Ivan. I also subcontracted work from FEMA/Army Core of Engineers (USACE) for Operation Blue Roof in Ft. Lauderdale and surrounding areas.
In 2007 I obtained a a contractor license and engaged in the business of re-roofing and placing modular homes.
