About me

I was born in Oklahoma, and raised in Texas. I played basketball at Oral Roberts University while I received my business degree. I moved to Colorado in 2003 to get my graduate degree at Colorado Christian University.

I was raised by a single mom, who managed to get her bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate while raising a child, and so I learned a lot about hard work from her.

I grew up playing basketball, and I learned more about business there than in school, because you learn about things like delegation and team work in basketball.

Starting a business

I started Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning after getting my graduate degree in 2006. I’ve always loved the franchise business model because it allows people to achieve their business dreams and goals without a lot of the risks, since they have a format to follow. We have more than 300 franchises around the country.

We’re different from the competition in that we want to be more environmentally friendly — the world’s greenest carpet cleaner. We also embrace the newest technology, which allows us to use far less water than other companies.

We also have some really great software that allows us to do scheduling for the entire company here in Lakewood.

In my free time

I like going to sporting events — my favorite teams are probably the Broncos and Avalanche.

I also love live music, so I always enjoy going to shows.

Giving back

We are giving $2 to Water.org for every customer that books their cleaning online. We’ve saved the planet 25 million gallons of water with our systems, we wanted to find a way to give that water back. One in ten people don’t have access to safe water, and we want to help change that.

We’ve been donating around $3,000 to $4,000 a month, and don’t plan on stopping this offer. It will be great next year to see how much the money we’ve donated has helped.
