Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
It found me. It’s been in my blood to always create and build things with my own two hands; my dad was a furniture designer.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
I always donate lamps and other items to Sacramento State’s crew team and whatever animal foundations I can.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’ve had some good roles in TV and film, as well as lots of national TV commercials.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
To our heavenly Father!
What’s your biggest job perk?
Putting a smile on my clients’ faces and making them happy.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Mikuni on Hazel Avenue.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
I live with my two rescue dogs, Daisy and Buddy, overlooking the American River, so we don’t have to go anywhere. I love to cook and I’m great at it, too.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
My dad – he was my mentor and I miss him dearly.
What’s your favorite local event that you go to?
Top of Folsom – I was asked to be an artist at this year’s event.
If you could be any other profession what would it be?
A football player.
And finally, customer service is…?
The best thing you can do for anyone – service with a smile. I’ve worked for the airlines, Nordstrom, and have been a bartender and waiter in some very nice places. I understand how important customer service is.
