I managed Diamond Vogel for nine years dealing with Flooring, Traffic, Industrial, Wood and Architectural Coatings. Recognizing resinous coatings were trending, we opened The Color Wheel. It quickly became a trusted, knowledgeable resource and supplier. In 2015 The Color Wheel was incorporated into the Hirshfield’s family.
Water-based wood finishing products are growing in popularity from increased regulation and the reclaimed wood trend. Navigating the new generation of waterborne technology can be challenging for new and experienced applicators. I have a history of hands-on application and listening to feedback. This helps me assist with proper product/equipment selection based on end use/shop environment.
New Home and Commercial Construction continues to evolve. Actively participating in the HBA has allowed me to build positive relationships with builders while advocating for the painting community. Painting professionals trust my diverse coating background and onsite experience . I assist them with unfamiliar projects and have successfully requested product systems developed to meet timelines.
Resinous floor coatings continue to grow. I have applied, studied, and researched a multitude of floor coatings. I conduct training in epoxy, polyurea, polyaspartic and urethane flooring systems. My presence on project sites has given me valuable insight and solutions to time sensitive situations. I can assist in designing flooring systems for specific environments that consider use, timelines, budget and install.
I was born and raised in Fargo, graduating from NDSU in 2006. My wife and I have been married for eight years and are excited to be expecting our first child.
Working for Hirshfield’s after owning a company has been an easy transition. Hirshfield’s strength comes from the utilization of their people. Hirshfield’s allows their employees to operate with flexibility to utilize their skills to develop robust customer relationships and product recommendations benefiting both parties.
