I have been in the kitchen business for almost 50 years. I started on my own in 1971 in Minnesota. The company was called D & S Kitchens [Dick and Sandy, my wife] I ran the business until 1999 when I turned it over to my son. I moved to Arizona to help a friend run his business and for my wife’s health.

I ran the shop for another major kitchen cabinet company until the death of the 2 principals and the subsequent bankruptcy. I then joined Kachina Kitchens to help Larry run the company. I take care of the manufacturing end and running of the jobs, setting schedules and getting materials to the men.
