About request an edit to this page

Give your household fix-it list to an honest, reliable, conscientious and friendly professional. I love to do those projects around the house that you don't have the time or inclination to do.

Some of the services I provide are:
Interior and Exterior Repairs: door, window and cabinet hinges, latches, locks and strike plates, sash windows (including counterweights,) window panes, light and electrical fixtures and ceiling fans, tile, grout, caulking, drywall installation, repair and removal, minor plumbing and electrical, some cabinetry, crown and picture molding, baseboards, railings, curtain rods and other window treatments, picture hanging, home theater setup, some appliance repair, removal and installation, power washing, interior and exterior painting, deck and fence repair and sealing, refinishing, gutter cleaning, some hauling and putting up holiday lights and decorations.

I try my best to be a Green Business! Although my customers have the last word, I recycle and use recycled or environmentally friendly products and materials whenever possible, and donate anything that can be used by others, rather than add to the local landfill.

About me:
I did my time in Corporate America but found it unfulfilling. In 2006, I attempted to live my dream of flying as a career - but, after 18 months training as a commercial helicopter pilot, with 90 hours flight time and straight A's in class, the school closed with all the students' (around 2500 nationwide) money.

Having always loved and having a knack for fixing and building things, problem solving and helping people, and with the help of a friend in the business, I decided to offer my services as a handyman to the public. And it's the most rewarding job I've had! I love the variety of jobs, meeting new people and the fulfillment I get from helping people who don't have the time or inclination to complete those to-do lists that always come with home, business or rental property ownership.

I offer free estimates and serve most of the San Francisco Bay Area. You may find cheaper labor, but I doubt you'll find a better value. I am dedicated to doing a great job and making it a pleasant experience. I do my best not to make a mess in the first place, and to leave the job space cleaner than when I arrived. My clients often contact me for more work and happily provide referrals and references. Please contact me with any questions!
