My story started in 1976 in the Bronx, NY where there was never a dull moment. From playing in the fire hydrant in the summers to snow ball fights in the winter, life in the Bronx was very dynamic.
As a child, I was always tinkering. Taking things apart and putting them back together (or at least trying to). I was always fascinated with how things worked and their theories of operation. Needless to say, my mother was not always thrilled with the things I couldn't put back together.
Turn the page to the summer of 1997, I met my soon to be wife. 8 short months later, we were married and in July of 1999, my first daughter was born.
Our next chapter was In 2000 where I enlisted in the United States Army as an AH-64 Apache Attack helicopter maintainer/crew chief. Attention to detail was paramount after all, I was responsible for a $25 million dollar piece of equipment. More importantly, the lives of two pilots were in my hands so I was very meticulous and detail oriented in ensuring that the mission was always complete.
Part of this Chapter included the horrific attack on the twin towers of the World Trade Center on 9/11. Stationed in South Korea at the time, I initially could not get in contact with my wife and my 2 year old daughter. Eventually, I was able to speak with her and was assured that they were both ok.
This Chapter also had me deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom from November 2002 (deployed on Thanksgiving day) to September 2003. Coming back home to Fort Bragg NC, had my wife and I rethinking our strategy about what to do when my enlistment was over, especially after our second daughter was born on June of 2004.
Our story continues in March 2006, when I was honorably discharged. We decided to stay in the South and relocated to the Paulding County area and have been here ever since. We have built a life here, watching our daughters grow into strong women. My oldest attends JSU (fear the beak) where she is majoring in music education and my youngest aspires to be a plastic surgeon.
Not bad for a couple of crazy kids from the Bronx.
As a homeowner myself, I was always involved in home improvement projects in either my own home or for friends, family and neighbors and as such started to take a vested interest in how everything worked inside my home. It was only natural that through hands on training and continued education including becoming an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector (CPI), that I am now able to ensure that your next or even first home will be professionally and confidently inspected.
In my spare time, I enjoy smoking on my UDS (ugly drum smoker) and riding my Dyna Street Bob, including an incredible two week cross county ride that I took in the summer of 2019.
That's our story for now and the chapters continue to grow.
