What first inspired you to get into your line of work? And what motivates you to do the work you do still today?
God’s will. After ruining my life with poor choices and as a result losing everything – my car, home, girlfriend, job and self-respect – I had nothing! I had nowhere and no one to turn to. I broke down and gave everything to God. I took a long walk the next day and passed by the American School of Technology. A sign advertised, “Classes starting Monday.” I walked in and said I wanted to start. They asked, “What I courses are you interested in?” I said, “What do you have?” They said “HVAC”; I said, “Let’s do it”. I stay in it because I feel like it’s where I’m supposed to be, leading and setting standards for an industry loaded with immoral characters.
How did you come to faith in Christ?
I grew up with a Baptist preacher Grandfather and a Sunday school teacher mom. However, my true faith in Christ came from the moment I hit rock bottom, and gave total control of my life to God.
How does your faith impact the way you do business?
We do not steal, cheat or screw anyone over when they are looking or when they aren’t looking. We do it right or we don’t do it. Money is great, but not at the expense of cheating a customer or losing my soul.
