A Cleveland native I have always had an interest in the outdoors and the environment. After graduating from Cleveland State University I held sales positions with local companies selling computers and computer software and industrial tools. After becoming a sales manager for an industrial distributor I subsequently lost my job after 9/11. Shortly thereafter, I contacted Good Nature Organic Lawn Care and was hired on to do sales, applications and office work (a little bit of everything). I am a licensed applicator and Certified Turfgrass Professional doing mostly customer service work. I also help to organize and present seminars to local groups and garden clubs on organic lawn and landscape care.
