Master License Number M-2250
Master Plumber in the State of Texas since 1981
I am a third generation Master Plumber. Starting at an early age, I spent every summer and holiday working as an assistant ditch digger through the age of 16 or what seemed to be forever. Of course, being raised and sitting at the dinner table with a second-generation plumbing company family, I was continually exposed to all of the business conversations and strategies.
In 1978, I received an associate’s degree in Construction Management and Technology. I followed that with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Personnel Management. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working for Sam P. Wallace International, which sent me to Saudi Arabia as an instructor of plumbing and HVAC systems. From there, I worked for Brady, Lohrman and Pendleton Consulting Engineers as a draftsman and their company’s representative at job site meetings. I completed my internship in the trade working with Milton B. Levy and Sons Plumbing, heading their residential remodel division. In 1982, I joined my parents’ company, Public Service Plumbers, Inc.
Over the years, I have been fortunate to learn from my mother, an Auditor/ Bookkeeper, and my father, a talented Master Plumber/Businessman, and to develop unyielding discipline as a M.P. in the United States Marine Corps.
My philosophy is quite simple:
“A transaction is good only when both parties benefit.”
