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.
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.
Construction Project Manager
Team Rondo Since: 2016
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!
As an Arizona native, I grew up around all sorts of water activities; water skiing, competitive swimming, going to the river or relaxing in the family pool. After joining the Rondo Pools family in 2017, I have quickly learned that my love for water is much greater than I thought. While I have much to learn about the pool industry, I am eager to know the ins and outs of the entire pool building process.
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.
