I grew up on a farm in S.E. Iowa, received a bachelor’s degree from UNI, and eventually moved to Des Moines in 1990. My career at Office Installation Services, Inc. began in 1991. I started as a furniture installer, then operations manager, and eventually became co-owner in 1995. From the very beginning our goal was never to be the biggest but the best independent furniture installation company in Iowa. Our motto is to not only meet but exceed our customers’ expectations. I have a beautiful and very understanding wife and 2 beautiful daughters. My time away from work is dedicated to family, friends, being a gym rat, and living life to the fullest!
