As the Customer Service & Marketing Manager for Access Heating & Air, some call me the refrigeration expert while others call me the life of the party. Either way, I take pride in my job and enjoy what I do while doing it well. Whether it’s at work or with family and friends, you can always count on me to bring a fun, upbeat attitude and atmosphere everywhere I go.
Personal development is also important to me as well as developing leaders. Paying it forward with the investment of so many people has been one of the biggest highlights of my job.

On my time off, I love spending time with my family and creating memories with them – life is too short not to have fun. I also love the Patriots, no matter what anyone says!

We have owned access heating & air since 1994. We started on a dream, it was simple, really. We wanted to bring a better level of service to homeowner in the Treasure Valley. I had worked at several heating companies before and cut my teeth doing all aspects of the business- from installation to sales and repairs- I quickly learned what it would take bring a new level of expert service to the Treasure Valley. So, with a little bit of money, we bought Access from a retiring veteran in the trades for a long time.
I got to work building a team that I knew I would want to send to my grandmas house. I wasn’t going to settle for anything but the best because I knew it was I was called to do all along.
My wife and I care about the team we have of dedicated professionals taking care of our customers. We have never once wavered in our commitment to providing the best level of service. With practiced core values like honesty, teamwork, and personal responsibility- we have worked hard to build a service business dedicated to doing what is right, no matter the cost.
I have a lot of guys that have been with me over 20 years now!
I have seen the ups and downs and felt the pain of many friends going out of business when financial times got rough but we have fought our way to the top and maintain award winning service year after year.
Warehouse and Install Support
At Access Heating & Air, I take care of all the maintenance related aspects of our business – from cleaning and stocking our vans to making sure our customers are taken care of. Keeping everything clean and well-organized is my main passion. For more than 20 years, I have been helping my brother Keith continue to build his business and always be out in front of everyone else. It is my core belief that we have the best installation and service team in the entire Treasure Valley!
Having grown up in Galesburg, Illinois with my sister and 2 brothers, I enjoy traveling around the world, meeting new people and taking in new sights that I have often read about or have seen in books and movies.

Service, Maintenance, Marketing
When I was younger, I started out in the building trade working at local lumber yards before building custom homes around the country. Having grown up in California, I eventually moved to Virginia before relocating to Idaho nearly 10 years ago.
I have really enjoyed all of the opportunities not just in the industry but also the many opportunities I’ve had while working for Keith at Access Heating & Air. I truly believe this industry is ripe for so many opportunities – from new technologies to new ways to install home comfort systems. I take great joy in having been able to learn so much in the short amount of time I have been with this terrific company.
When I’m not working, I really enjoy investing in my kids and wife and am excited to see what our future holds! I also volunteer at the church I have been attending for the last 8 years and have greatly benefited from the many people currently in my life. I feel like my career moving forward is wide open and I’m looking forward to learning so many new things and continuing to help move Access Heating & Air forward in the coming years.
