Founder and Owner
Tell us about yourself
What is the most important thing to know about you?
I’m a Christian and my faith and my family come first in my life. That’s the same mentality with which I guide the company. I try to treat people like I think Christ would. I treat our Accurate team like family.
Tell me about your family, what do you all enjoy doing together?
I married my high school sweetheart in 1991. We have 4 awesome sons who bring us unique joys and challenges nearly every day. Our (my) favorite thing to do is deep sea fish. That can be for 1/2 day trips or up to 2.5-day trips. Getting out on a boat away from the busyness of life to just hang out with each other is so fun. The thrill of pulling in a big tuna is incomparable.
What are your hobbies?
Accurate keeps me pretty busy, but I like to get involved in whatever my boys are doing. If one of them has to read a book for a project, I’ll read it too. If one of them gets a new skateboard, we all get skateboards. If they are questioning how we came to be, I research it with them.
What accomplishment are you most proud of in your life?
I used to be a guy who would take everything on by myself, not asking for help or relying on anyone else. I’ve been able to let that go and I’ve surrounded myself with people who are much better than me. Together we are accomplishing great things. Also, I can’t take the credit, but having a long-lasting, loving marriage for so many years has to rank up there too!
Any other interesting things we/our customers might like to know?
I once went “code blue.” I stopped breathing after a surgery and had to be resuscitated. I scared my wife nearly to death. Not everyone gets to do that!
Now let’s talk about work…
Why did you start Accurate and what does your role entail?
I started Accurate because time and time again in my trade I ran across customers who were unhappy and had been treated unfairly. I thought there was a void in the contracting trades for an honest and integrity-focused company that would treat every client as if they were your grandparents. Who doesn’t love their grandparents? I know I do, and I go out of my way to do everything for them in the best possible manner. That’s our goal for every client. My role in the company is just steering the ship. Everyone else on the team does the real work.
Why did you choose this career?
Honestly, I wanted to earn a good living as quickly as possible so I could marry my wife. I didn’t want to get married before I could support her and our future family. What started as a short-term goal became a labor of love.
What is the best part about working for Accurate?
There are lots of things. Getting to have my boys work alongside me is the most rewarding. My oldest is helping me guide the company now and every one of them works in the company in some capacity. I like being the one that started a workplace that has brought an absolutely awesome team of people together to help out our clients. Lastly, I really enjoy reading all of our reviews. That allows me to get a glimpse into how my team is treating our clients like their own grandparents.
What words of wisdom or encouragement do you have for our customers?
Nobody wants to deal with the issues that arise with their electrical, plumbing, heating, or air conditioning. But when you have to, let us help you out… you won’t go wrong. I think our Accurate Promise summarizes it best, “If you aren’t absolutely satisfied with your service, we’ll make it right or you don’t pay… simple as that!”
