I’d love to share a bit about myself, if you don’t mind. I’ll start with this: I didn’t feel very intelligent growing up. (Perhaps I wasn’t.) But when a 10th-grade economics teacher handed me Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, I was hooked. Nearly three decades later, my hunger for learning hasn’t waned. In fact, it’s accelerated.
I'm most notably known as the CEO and founder of kitchen & bath CRATE, a Northern California company that’s completed thousands of kitchen and bathroom remodels since 2012. Using our proprietary remodeling system, kitchen & bath CRATE walks customers through the entire proposal, design, permitting, and construction process in an exceptionally short amount of time. kitchen & bath CRATE later acquired AAI Tile & Stone to round out the turnkey business’ products and services. Learn all about this innovative home improvement concept at kbcrate.com.
In 2021, I put my passion for sharing my experience into print. I published The Crate Way, a guide for homeowners planning a home improvement project. The book offers a simple step-by-step process for achieving the remodel of your dreams. We spend so many hours in our homes, and therefore, they should be beautiful, relaxing spaces that we love enjoying with others.
And I didn’t stop there. In late 2022, I launched a new company providing countertop fabrication and complete unit renovations to the multi-family, senior housing, and commercial building sector.
And now — I’d love to put my experience, knowledge, and skills to the test to help YOU on your own business journey. Where will we go together?
