During my previous career as a captain, I was ultimately responsible for all functions of a ship’s systems, and the safety of all crew and passengers aboard.  As a supremely detail oriented person, and one who places safety above all else, it was my nature as well as my role to ensure complete readiness and functionality of the vessel before getting underway.   Now, as a home inspector, I bring the same level of care and commitment to my clients and their respective properties.

I live with my wife, two daughters and our whippet in Ridgemont, Bellingham.
