What is your position within your company?
I am sole owner of Interbay Roof Inspection Consultants, Bothell,
Why did you become a part of the roofing industry?
When I was 14 years old, I left the orphanage I was placed in as a
child because my parents could not afford to feed five kids. I
worked on a farm driving a combine for $1 a day. One day, I went to
the farm labor employment office to find a different farm job. A
roofing truck drove by, and the driver asked whether I was
interested in working for a roofing company.
What was your first roofing experience?
Tearing off a roof system and shoveling a lot of dirt into the
trash shoot. At the end of each day, I got fired. The next morning
at 5:30 a.m., I'd get a call from the roofing contractor asking why
I was not there loading the truck. It was not easy in those days
