Tell us a little about your business.
John Henry’s is a fun place to work! Our team is very close. We care about the health of our community and saving lives. We offer plumbing, heating, air conditioning, duct cleaning, and water conditioning services. We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in all kinds of weather to provide true customer service.
How did you get started in the business?
While going to college, I worked for a local fire and water restoration company as a technician. I was soon promoted to a Project Manager position and worked directly with insurance carriers on restoration projects. I developed many close business relationships including one with John Henry’s, which I used for my plumbing and HVAC needs. I admired their company culture and enjoy a similar position within their organization as a Project Manager and Estimator. My new journey has begun!
Tell us a little about your family.
I have been married to my wonderful wife Maja for 8 years! We are blessed to have a 3-year-old son Max, and are expecting a daughter in early August. We also have a 12-year-old Jack Russell Terrier named Kobe.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Typically, I try to squeeze in a quick round of golf, followed by yard games, BBQ, and quality time with family and friends.
What are you most proud of?
Always being a positive role model for my son and the kind of person others can count on.
If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be?
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
I was told a quote by George Ludwig: “If you want to be a positive influence in the world remember that influence begins with you and ripples outward.” It is true in all aspects of life. I try to be positive at work and home because hopefully my positivity and happiness can encourage others around me.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
The ability to fly so I could get from place to place quicker and see the world from another perspective.
What local non-profit organization(s) are you passionate about or involved with, and are there any special reasons why?
My wife has worked at the Child Advocacy Center for over ten years. It’s an organization that we both believe in and support. They do amazing and important work for the children in our community.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
What is your favorite local restaurant?
I haven’t settled on a specific restaurant but do enjoy trying many new restaurants with my family.
