Tell us about yourself
My wife and I have been married for 20 years and I have 5 fun kids (the oldest in college and 1 newborn). We have a rescue Australian cattle dog named Lola.
Before starting Mission Barbers, I was an IT Project Manager and even volunteered for the Gilbert Fire Department for some time.
When did you start with Mission Barbers?
I started Mission Barbers in January 2020.
What barber services do you specialize in?
I really enjoy transformations. I have the unique skill of being able to do “barber styles” from classic to modern on all hair types.
Why do you love doing what you do?
I love seeing the emotional, mental and physical transformation happen in front of our eyes with a haircut. Going through depression in years past and giving people a more private place to unwind, relax, express themselves and be there for them, means everything to me.
At Mission Barbers, we volunteer and offer haircuts to the homeless, veterans, and kids in orphanages.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I love doing anything outdoors especially hiking, camping, kayaking. I love sports, especially football, grilling, listening to all types of music, and couples dancing.
