People say I can talk to anyone. This is true, so don’t be afraid to ask me anything. Working at Advanced is an honor. I am proud that my father has built a legacy for his family and I am able to serve Advanced and I do it with joy.
We have been building this business together for a couple decades. It’s great to serve San Diego and now all of Southern California with our expertise. We look forward to working with you. If I am not working, you will find me with my stunning wife Jessica and our 3 kids!
I am passionate about my position within our company, and have never thought of it as a “job”. I’m blessed to be working with my family for over 10 years and counting; all working towards the same goal, and witnessing growth and success.
I love working for Advanced. Not only do I get to work with my family, I’m surrounded by people who love this place just as much as I do. You’ll hear the love for Advanced in our voice when you call us…look forward to talking to you!
Learning this industry from the ground up and having a great team has given me all the necessary tools I need to succeed. If I’m not head first in a compressor you can find me on the lake fishing or on the golf course.
