Owner & General Manager
I have been involved with the Handyman Connection Franchise system since 2000.
Starting off in the Calgary, AB location with my father and sister as a Customer Service Representative and naturally progressing into the Office Manager, onto the General Manager, and then finally made the leap into the owner position with my wife and partner Christina, with the purchase of the Red Deer location in 2004, the official purchase of Calgary in early 2013, and our newest addition to the franchise family of the Victoria, BC location in 2013.
I pride myself on honesty, integrity and just simply providing a trustworthy customer service support system for homeowners and Craftsmen alike.
Outside of the Handyman Connection life, I have been married for 20 years, have 3 great children, 2 of which are pursuing their dreams currently in University, and the youngest set to graduate high school this year. You can also find me pursuing my passion as an amateur musician playing Rock and Roll on the weekends in various clubs in and around the city.
I started off with Handyman Connection back in 1998, assisting the family on a part time basis as they got the business off the ground. As I have changed roles to General Manager and owner, I have enjoyed the experiences of working with the entire Handyman Connection crew of talented craftsmen locally, as well as owners and managers across Canada and the US.
We continue to work with only the best trades in our area, and are proud to provide a quality service to our valued Clients time and time again.
Outside of the office, I enjoy golfing, hiking, travelling and taking photos by mass volumes! I have been married for 21 years, and have 3 great kids I am very proud of!
Customer Service Representative
Before moving to Calgary in 2009, I lived in Montreal for 25 years but am originally from the East coast.
My background is primarily customer service and hotel management so I love having a daily connection with the public and getting to know interesting people.
I have my very own “handyman” at home, along with a teenage daughter.
At Handyman Connection, we pride ourselves in teaming with skilled craftsmen across a wide range of specialties to give you peace of mind when tackling all of your home improvement needs.
My handyman was very thorough and cleaned up as he was installing my closet. He was friendly and on time. I will definitely recommend using this service
