Bio
I am the husband of one very wonderful wife and proud father of three amazing boys. I adore my family and will do anything for them. I am also retired military, and served in Iraq for a year. I was injured in Iraq when a truck fell on me, and the Army decided they didn't need me any more after my back surgery. I am not disabled in any way, and am stronger and work harder than ever before. I am an extremely reliable, trustworthy, and honest person. I am meticulous with my work, and will not complete the project set before me until both my customer and I are completely satisfied with the results. I am definitely the man for the job you have in mind.
