After a fulfilling Film & Television career in Los Angeles doing Editing and Visual Effects, my wife & I decided to move back to Florida so our two kids could grow up near their grandparents and family. I was also eager to switch gears and get away from a desk job and into something that required getting outside for more physical work. I’ve always enjoyed trouble shooting in all aspects of any job and with HVAC you get to do just that. It’s very rewarding to be able to help people and troubleshoot issues with their systems. When not working, I love hanging out with my family, playing video games with my kids and finding new, exciting places around town to eat with my wife.
