General Manager & Vancouver rep

I grew up in the green industry, working for a retail garden nursery next door to the house in which I was raised. Counting those early days, I have more than 40 years of experience working with plants, people and trees.

I started with General Tree Service as a Plant Health Care technician in 1990. From there, I worked my way up the ladder to General Manager and have been filling that role for the past 20 years while seeing the economy boom and bust.

Through it all, because of the great people I work with, we have successfully maintained some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Portland/Vancouver metro areas. I’m very proud of that.

My wife and I live in Brush Prairie WA with 2 dogs, 2 cats, many chickens and such! We are now empty nesters and have 3 grown kids and 2 grand kids. In my spare time (which isn’t much) I enjoy hunting, fishing and being outdoors.
