Objective My objective is to perform for your company in a manner that surpasses your expectations.
Accomplishments Management experience with many large projects on military and historical restorations.
During the years of managing in business, I found the need for computers in designing, organizing, bidding and invoicing. It occurred to me that I was paying others to upgrade my computers, when I knew I could do it myself. This led to my learning how to build computers. I have designed and built furniture, free standing curved stairways, entry doors, radius moldings and every kind of cabinet I could get a contract on. Also, I have built and sold computers to clients ranging from beginners, to Graphic Artists, to Engineers, to Musicians.
Much of my spare time, between 1988 and 2003, was devoted to a charitable organization, where I also served a term as Chairman. We generated up to $75,000 annually for local children’s charities. Skills My skills consist of the following:
1) Project Management of multiple projects.
2) Shop Management with experience in designing and building many wood projects.
3) Organizing, motivating, training and leading employees. 4) Searching out and acquiring new clients.
5) Taking a project from the client’s conception, to paper, through pricing and completion.
6) Reviewing a project, studying and understanding the specs, and producing an accurate bid.
7) Creating projects in AutoCAD.
8) Designing cabinets with Cabinet Vision 2012.
Jan. ‘10 to May ‘12 KingSpoke LLC. Austin, Texas
I have always had my eyes set on much larger and more important projects, such as historical restorations. I wanted to procure and perform these projects and could comfortably do so in this LLC. Nov. ‘02 to Jan. ‘10 KingSpoke Austin, Texas
This is a door company that was set up to build creative and beautiful interior and exterior doors. We were successful at generating clients and producing the doors they expect and desire. It has proven to be a fantastic adventure.
June ‘02 to Sep. ‘02 Cabinets Deluxe Leander, Texas Plant Manager
The first challenge I undertook was that of insuring complete deliveries and finishing cabinet packages ahead of schedule. When I started with Cabinets Deluxe, the typical job was delivered 3 weeks late and about 85% complete, I adjusted enough procedures to change this for the better. Morale was another challenge I undertook with the same attention to detail. In my opinion, the company was a much better and more efficient place to work during my employment there.
June ‘01 to April ‘02 Quality Woodwork Interiors Houston, Texas Project Manager
Within the first week with this company, I was given the position as Project Manager of the “Dr. Denton Cooley Building” (Texas Heart Institute) in Houston. This was a $1,5mil project for Quality Woodwork Interiors, which increased to a $2.1mil project after signed Change Proposals. The Owner then wanted me to Project Manage the casework at the new Reliant Stadium in Hoston. This had to be finished in time for a scheduled Super Bowl in the stadium. Instead I was sent to Austin as the position aof Project Manager for “The Austin Convention Center”, a
$550K project of casework, which operated very smoothly under my supervision.

Project Management, including all tasks imaginable in the woodworking business. I encouraged my clients to test me on anything in this area to raise their expectations.
Nov. ‘77 to Nov. ‘86 Reissig Builders Houston and Austin, Texas Manager

The jobs in Houston ranged up to $200K homes. We quickly moved up to $1Mil and multi $Mil homes in Austin. I graduated from this company into my next company, C. J. Stairs. Education
