I grew up in Construction in San Luis Obispo County. I love this place – I call it home. After high school I started a handyman business with a truck and a weed-whacker and have built it to the business it is today. DKC&P provides an excellent product — Service. DKC&P provides the best service in the community: we are available, we are responsive, we won’t ignore you, and we know our reputation is only as good as what YOU think of us. Service is the product . . .
I hold a Bachelor’s of Science and Master’s of Science in Accounting from Walden University. I also have a Juris Doctorate from the Santa Barbara Colleges of Law. I have always worked to put myself through college and law school by running the construction business. My wife is employed in small business as well.
My wife, son, and soon to be daughter, and I live in San Luis Obispo now, but, we have lived in Atascadero for some time as well. I am a Rotarian and I teach in the Business and Construction Technology Department at Cuesta College. I sit on the advisory board for the Construction Technology department.

Cuesta College Construction Technology: I am an Adjunct Professor in the Cuesta College Construction Technology and Business Departments and volunteer on the Construction Technology Advisory Board. I believe that kids and young adults are discouraged from going into the trades because it is looked at as some sort of failure in life. I want to make it clear to them that being a builder is a noble thing and without builders and constructors there would be no society.
In process to become a Certified Public Accountant: At first to better manage the business I started to pursue a California CPA certification. Soon it became clear that this was a benefit to my customers as well – I could help with the financial decisions as well as the building decisions.
