Welcome to my first post as a Coachella Valley Home Inspector. I relocated my business from San Francisco to La Quinta in October 2017, and have been meeting home buyers and real estate professionals to share my experience and availability. Here’s a bit about me.
I began my construction career back in the late 1970’s working as an laborer on large commercial buildings in Denver, Colorado. My dad was a construction superintendent, and he helped me land a summer job carrying buckets of concrete in 100 degree heat! I attended Colorado State University, and then went to work full time as a Field Engineer on large industrial projects like waste water treatment plants and shopping malls.
In the late 1980’s I had the good fortune to relocate to San Francisco, working as a project manager on a huge seismic retrofit project at the SFO Airport. In 1994, I launched the home inspection side of my career as a FEMA Home Inspector after the Northridge earthquake. Since then, I’ve inspected over 3000 California homes–mostly as an expert witness for construction defect litigation.
I look forward to using my broad experience to assist Coachella Valley home buyers on their path to desert living. To learn more about my credentials, please visit About. And, stay tuned for my next post on new 2018 requirements for swimming pools.
