Career Philosophy

Enjoy what you do and do what you enjoy! I take pleasure in every aspect of my job from the challenge each new day brings, to the relationships I develop and grow, to the people I work with. I take great pride in providing great customer service because it’s the key to developing and maintaining long-term relationships with my clients. Listening to their needs and taking into account their budgetary concerns to develop a plan that exceeds their expectations brings me great satisfaction. I’m passionate about my work and I hope that others take notice.

Experience/Responsibilities

It’s hard for me to believe, but I have 20 years’ experience in the landscape industry. My earliest experiences in the field were working as a crew member during my summer vacations from college. Upon graduating from college, I decided to enter the field of horticulture on a full-time basis, eventually becoming a crew foreman at a local landscape company. After a few years as a foreman, I was looking for a new challenge, so I started my own landscape company. I was successful for six years as a sole proprietor before coming to LandWorks as a Client Service Representative in 2008. Here at LandWorks, I focus on sales in the areas of maintenance, landscape renovation, seasonal color, and snow removal. I am also the team lead for our maintenance division and work with an outstanding group that includes eight other CSR’s.

Personal Interests

First and foremost, I love spending time with my wife and two kids. When my work day is done, my second job as dad begins. I enjoy reading, coloring, going to the park, and playing around with my kids. On weekends, you can find me working in the yard either mowing the lawn or caring for my plants. I have even inspired the kids to help me in the yard from time to time. I am a sports fanatic and love talking sports with anyone that will listen. Having an adult beverage, listening to Uecker on the radio, and sitting in the hammock is one of my favorite pastimes. I’m also very competitive and will participate in almost any type of game or activity. I dare you to challenge me at a game of bags or shuffleboard!
