I started Glass Man Window Washing in 2005, building my business slowly through jobs from family and friends, growing by word of mouth through Ventura County and Santa Barbara. I was a full-time student at Ventura College where I played water polo. After a year of full-time, steady work, I knew that I had a viable and successful business on my hands, and turned my efforts into building a business to support my community and values. We began to hire and grow. By 2010, I had graduated from CSU Channel Islands in Camarillo with two bachelor’s degrees in business and economics. Soon after, I earned my master’s degree in business administration. I looked at how to better serve our customers, protect my team members, and support our community. I invested in top-tier equipment and expanded the services that my company offered.
