- Started as Primary installer, and also a cabinet maker
- As the company grew, I took on new responsibilities and now am the VP of Sales
Married with 5 children - 1 employed with Chervin, 1 teaching, 1 a carpenter, and 2 still in school

Coffee - it's happened before, but it's not good
“Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.” – Norman Schwarzkopf
Current Personal Dream Design:
I love my kitchen (we renovated in 2012) – it has stained cabinets (cappuccino stain on maple); if I were building a new home, I would tend toward a mix of walnut and cream/off-white colours
Happy this fad is over:
Stained maple, cherry, and early American stained oak were very popular when I was actively designing, so now I like seeing different options
Reading – I typically have 5 books on the go at a time - novels, leadership books, missionary stories; gardening...
Chicken dinner – old-fashioned: vegetables, garden salad, baked potatoes, chicken gravy, and strawberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert!
