Fun Fact:

“One of my past occupations prior to SavATree was working with a trained border collie to gently herd Canada geese away from golf courses and neighborhoods.”

Why He Became An Arborist:

“To bridge the gap between my desire to learn everything I can about trees and my desire to provide value to and expand my professional network.”

Customer Service Philosophy:

“‘When you know how to listen, everybody is the Guru.’ I like this quote because it reminds me to listen more than I talk. No matter the circumstance, I can always learn something from a client and use it as building material for self improvement.”
