    I was born and raised in Dayton Ohio but came to Columbus to finish my undergraduate degree. It didn't take long to realize this would be our forever home. We currently live in Worthington and have no plans to leave anytime soon! After Graduating from THE Ohio State University I began to work part-time at College Hunks Hauling Junk. Being given the opportunity to grow my business acumen, help the community that I love, and instill our core values in other like-minded employees was a no-brainer for me. I knew from my first few days here that I wanted to have an ownership role and help this company grow. Columbus is a great city for the young. There is always something to do around town. My wife and I particularly enjoy watching Ohio State Football, the Columbus Blue Jackets and taking advantage of Hocking HIlls with our dogs on the weekend.

    I met my wife while working as Cruise Director on a ship in 2001. I was living in Florida at the time and when we were married in 2004, I moved to Columbus Ohio where she was living with her two sons. Living in Columbus means you are automatically and unequivocally a Buckeye fan! After becoming fully immersed in the ways of a Buckeye fan, I saw a CHHJ opportunity on a Franchise website in 2008. I loved the business model and was totally enamored with Nick & Omar's success story. With Columbus being a huge College town, I thought it would be a perfect fit. Even with the Recession at fever pitch, I purchased the 6th CHHJ franchise. The first few years were very challenging as the economy was failing and people were carefully watching their money. I was able to hire many OSU students during that time, including Alex, who joined me as a Manager after graduating from Ohio State and is now a partner. My two boys worked with us during the summers and have both now graduated from OSU. I am an avid (although horrible) golfer and my wife and I play as often as we can. I also had the glorious opportunity to play the famous Muirfield Village course recently, which is only a few miles from my home. And if you're looking for complete diversity and selection when it comes to restaurants...Columbus is the place. I have 30 years at sea as a Cruise Director and still work 4-6 months a year with Royal Caribbean International. Alex runs the show while I'm away and he is the best partner an owner could hope for. We look forward to serving the fine people of Columbus with excellent Customer Service and care.

    Originally from Arizona but my entire family has slowly migrated to Columbus so it seems only right to come as well. Some of my favorite things to do include working-out, learning to perfect new healthy recipes, and writing/playing music in my free time. I love to explore on the new restaurants in the Short North and Columbus Metro area as well. In the span of just over a year at College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving I have transitioned from a Wingman, to a truck Captain, and now an Assistant Manager who runs the show on the weekends!

    I was born in Hilliard, Ohio and attended Hilliard Darby High School. It's such a great community that is growing so quickly I don't see any reason to leave! Most of my free-time is taken up by my beautiful daughter Ella that was introduced earlier in March of this year. When I do have some time away I enjoy working on my car and helping others install and modify their own vehicles. I was previously employed in a sales position but saw an opportunity with College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving and took it because I saw the great work environment, as well as the growth opportunity, both personally and professionally. I enjoy coming into work every day and always look forward to the next.
