I was born in Syracuse in 1952 and have resided here all of my life. After graduating from Jamesville-DeWitt High School, I spent 1 year at Onondaga Community College. I was hired by a Masonry contractor the ensuing year and learned how to poor footings, lay blocks, pour concrete walls and construct fireplaces. In 1975, I decided to go to work for my grandfather, who owned a sheet metal fabrication business that primarily built custom made refrigeration equipment for restaurants/hotels /bowling alleys etc. That same year I received my “certification” in the HVAC industry from a BOCES program offered at Central Tech High School. For the next 23 years, I was an integral part of all facets of the business and the knowledge that I attained in those years was priceless. After dissolving the business in 1998, I was hired at Carrier Corp for the next 6 years. Carrier closed up in 2004 and its then I decided to become a Home Inspector, knowing that the knowledge I had acquired since High School always involved all the trades associated with the construction of a home. I have been a home inspector since 2004 and became “licensed” shortly thereafter.
To continue to gain knowledge in this industry, through continued education classes and everyday experiences in the field. I have a moral obligation to each and everyone of my clients to perform the best home inspection possible and never be influenced by outside parties. I also enjoy meeting new people daily and to know that I’ve helped in determining an outcome (good or bad) about the most important purchase they will probably make in their lifetime.
