I began my career in horticulture when I was 15 at Meadows Farms Nurseries selling Christmas trees, loading cars with plants and mulch. My first draw to the industry was being outside, getting dirty, seeing who could carry more bags of mulch at once, who could pick up the largest plant or pull the heaviest cart. I worked part time there through high school. After a brief stent in college I began working full time back at the nursery and quickly realized that the nursery business was what I wanted to do. I spent the next 11 years working at multiple locations, and as the nursery manager of three of their locations. I left in 2012 and began work as a landscape designer and project manager for a local landscape/hardscape company. From 2014 through the summer of 2017 I worked for a commercial landscape company as the landscape division manager. We did everything from single tree installs, to large landscape construction, and of course, seasonal flower rotations. I began working at Saunders Brothers as a Regional Sales Associate in August 2017 covering our Shenandoah Valley, Northern Virginia, and Washington DC customers. As a customer, I always knew that when a Saunders Brothers truck was coming, we were getting the best. I am now honored to be working for Saunders Brothers and I am so excited to be working with, and for, all the great Saunders Brothers customers.
I live in Northern Virginia with my wife Erica my two amazing daughters, Amberlee and Emma, and our newest edition, my son, Cooper (he’s a dog). In my spare time, I enjoy going to the beach, the lake, riding bikes with the family, fishing. Hopefully one day I can get back out on the slopes.
