I entered into Construction Project Management in 1990 with a valley home builder. As floor-plans, building methods and architectures became more appealing, the backyards also became more prevalent. As I watched and coordinated with pool companies constructing an extension of the homes that I built, I was mesmerized. My curiosity was piqued and after 9 years of building up, I decided to dig down. In 1999, I dove into the pool industry as a Superintendent.
I’m grateful that my profession affords me the ability to forge bonds with trades and customers having a common goal of constructing one’s dreams. I experienced a similar comradery after 9/11 when I enlisted in the armed forces. The surroundings and circumstances may have changed, but because of those partnerships, I am now a proud veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I saw a lot of the country and a bit of the world while in the Army, but in 2007, I returned home and to Rondo. In my personal life, I enjoy backpacking, nature photography and traveling to new places. And as a true native Phoenician, I hold faithful to the NFL team that graced our TV sets prior to the Cardinals coming to town… Go Cowboys!
Construction Project Manager
Team Rondo Since: 1994 – 04, 2015
I was always exposed to the water growing up in Southern California; whether it was surfing, water skiing or swimming in my own pool. As a teenager I worked for a pool builder and maintained their display pools as well as learned drafting and pool design. After that, my career was in printing and advertising for 10+ years in California and continued after moving to Arizona in 1987. I joined Rondo Pools in 1994 until 2005.
During my first tenure at Rondo Pools I enjoyed building hundreds of pools specializing in the North Valley, several are award winning. I have experience building on some of the most difficult terrains in the Valley for 20+ years. My hands-on approach ensures quality. I am excited to be back on the Rondo Team. I look forward to another robust tenure, building beautiful works of water. Outside of work, I enjoy being with family and friends and in the great outdoors; dirt biking, snow skiing, water skiing, scuba diving, golf and relaxing pool side.

Team Rondo Since: 2016
I am an Arizona native. I have been in the pool industry for over 20 years and involved in most aspects of the pool building process. I enjoy meeting our new clients and learning about their dreams for their backyard escape. I look forward to many years of building beautiful pools and making dreams come true. In my free time, I enjoy remodeling houses, camping and playing golf.
I was born in Deer Born Heights, Michigan. I began my journey in the Pool & Spa Industry in 2004 after 12 years in the automotive industry. My experience ranges from sales and design thru all aspects of construction. Over the years, I have been privileged to be involved in some beautiful backyard projects and am looking forward to many future years of building beautiful poolscapes for our clients. My greatest enjoyment comes in spending time with my children, fishing and classic car shows.
I was born in New Mexico but moved around a lot throughout my childhood. I moved to Arizona for the first time in 1994 and then permanently in 1999. I have been working in the pool industry since 2013 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I was happy to join the Rondo Pools team in 2016 and have witnessed “The Rondo Difference” every day.
I enjoy building relationships with my clients as a pool technician as well being part of the team for the amazing pools that we have built. Working in the pool industry, we to get to see a client’s vision become reality and I am lucky to be a part of the process. I love working in an industry that is forever changing, knowing there will always be something new to learn. I have also been serving in the Army Reserve since 2009. I am honored that I am able to both serve my country and have a rewarding job outside the military. Outside of work, I enjoy running, spending time with family and friends and Alabama football. Go Roll Tide!
Like many people in Arizona I am a transplant from the Midwest. Born in Chicago but raised in Scottsdale, I attended local grade and high schools and continued on to Arizona State University. It’s great living in a valley having a team in all of the major sports – especially with a family at home that are all sports enthusiasts! Entering the pool industry in 1986, I took a hiatus for my college years.
I re-entered in 1994 by coming to work at Rondo Pools & Spa’s and have now been here 20+ years. I love working in a field that is not constant. It’s been amazing to witness the evolution of what swimming pool designs have become over the years.
I am an Arizona native born and raised in East Valley. I started my journey in the Arizona pool industry back in 2015 as a designer. After designing dozens of pools for great families, I decided to transition to the construction side of the industry. I’ve enjoyed learning the process that is required to build a quality pool and have enjoyed seeing the beautiful projects come to life. My hobbies include golfing, watching the Fighting Irish win, fishing and skeet shooting.
