Introduction to Mr. OCD

May 31, 2011 • mr ocd

Greetings people, and welcome to the “Ops” section of the Spectrum Restoration blogging world. Here you’ll find a view of Spectrum and the restoration industry through my eyes.

My eyes are currently 31 years of age, along with the rest of myself. I worked for 9-years as a residential & commercial architectural designer before joining Spectrum, where I’ve been for a little over 2-years. I have my IICRC certification, and actually just recently enjoyed acquiring a diploma in Restoration Project Management through Violand Management Associates and Kent State University in Ohio.

I started cleaning carpet like most restoration guys, and have quickly found myself responsible for all the normal operations tasks, including commercial & large-loss disasters, as well as out of town losses. Periodically we travel out to Colorado or Wisconsin to help our “partner” companies, where I run our out-of-town disaster teams. Fun stuff. 🙂

I like to think I’m a good writer, you can all be the judge of that. I’ll be sharing little snippets via our @spectrumops Twitter account, and will be writing monthly blogs on specific subjects. Responses to my ramblings are always invited! I love the idea of developing a bit of an online restoration community right here at Spectrum Restoration. Please feel free to respond to writings if they hit a nerve or tickle a funny bone.

I may gripe about things from time to time, but overall I’m definitely a positive and optimistic person and have a strong commitment to constantly building and improving workplace culture. I believe that attitude is everything, in every workplace. I believe that you can be up to your neck in sewage, and if you have a smile on your face, somehow it doesn’t wreak quite so bad. 🙂

So stay tuned. This is just the introduction. More sweet blogs are on the way!
