Service Technician

Before joining Gardner Builders in 2022, I had my own residential handyman business for over 20 years. Back in college I was studying to become a youth minister, but I always found myself getting involved in volunteer opportunities that would revolve around construction projects. What I enjoy most about my job is being able to build and fix things with my hands all while helping people all at the same time.

I was born and raised in Michigan’s upper peninsula. I have also been married for 21 years and has 5 kids, all heavily involved in art and music. In my free time, I play guitar and sing in my church’s worship band. I also run a small screen printing shop from my basement, designing and printing shirts for hockey tournaments, schools, and church groups.

comes in so handy.
