This hunk is the muscle at Junk in the Trunk. He does most of the heavy lifting, and he enjoys it. He left his construction business to help with the overwhelming demand at Junk in the Trunk. We went from 7-10 clean outs a year to 3-5 a week.

While he won't admit it, he loves treasures too! Especially tools, he has a huge collection. Besides his love of collecting tools, he also loves Football. He enjoys watching, talking, and even playing football. If you start talking football, he will lose track of time and talk all day. You're a goner if you mention his favorite team the Michigan Wolverines.

His other interests include: His crazy cat Screech, Cooking, Cleaning(lol jk), traveling, and spending time with his lovely family.
