We've been in the cleaning industry since 1990
when a friend and I opened a part-time carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise.  I was a manufacturing engineer at the time.  Gena was a graphic designer, a job I always thought looked like a lot of fun.  The business turned full-time a couple of years later when the company I worked for moved both my job and my business partner to the Midwest. 

After we were blessed with the birth of our daughter, Gena joined me in the business handling many of the day-to-day business operations.  In 2000 we left the franchise system to go it on our own.  For the next five years we operated Clear Choice Carpet and Upholstery Care, a name you may recognize.....along with the "old" picture above.

Then, in 2005 we pulled up roots, sold the business and moved to the warmer climes of beautiful southwest Florida.  After 15 years we were eager for a change a pace.  I landed a position as a construction manager for a builder.  Gena got her real estate license.

While I've always been a handy sort, construction was something entirely new.  It's hard to imagine how I was ever hired.  And, it's one of those careers you either love or hate.  After six weeks of training, or watching as I called it, I was handed the keys to my very own truck with "Superintendent" on the fender, a brand new set of  power tools and a stack of prints and sent out into the field. 

While I was learning about tie beams and fire blocking, sheathing inspections and such, I was also discovering some Florida bugs pack a big bite despite the fact they're so small you can't even see them, at least one little snake has all the feistiness of a Chihuahua, and the Florida version of a Wolf Spider might fake like it drowned in the pool and then lunge at you when you fish it out. I'll tell you, when you find a black widow sitting in the living room eating a scorpion....ah, never mind.

Working in Lehigh Acres, I was in the boonies.  Dirt roads with miles of nothing but bugs and snakes.  Learning to build homes is one of the more challenging things I've done.  Looking back, sixty-some completed homes later, for all the toil and frustration it was one of the most rewarding jobs I never loved.  Honestly, though, I'm truly grateful to Paul and Anne at Hansen Homes for two good years and the opportunity to learn a new trade.  I wish you guys all the best!

And, now we're back!  It was fun and we enjoyed it but in 2008 we made our way back to Laurel and opened Drynamic Carpet and Upholstery Care.  Gena still lends a hand with some of the day-to-day operations.  She continued her career in real estate here in Maryland for a time but has since shelved that while the market recovers. 

That interest in graphic design I mentioned earlier eventually turned into to Miller Creative! Printing and Graphic Design.  Offering an array of graphic, web page and printing services, my focus is in the cleaning industry but I serve a range of clients.  I'm here at http://www.pdqmarketing.com if you know of anyone looking.
