My wife Melinda, business partner Shane, and myself are all veterans of the kitchen and bath industry. For years we worked together for a large cabinet distributor in the Washington DC area and dreamed of one day owning our own dealership. In 2009 that dream was realized and Kitchen & Bath Environments was born. We have a showroom conveniently located near the corner of Wade Ave and Ridge Road just inside the beltline. We enjoy all aspects of kitchens and bathrooms but most of all we have a passion to create new and exciting living spaces beyond our customers expectations. I am excited about joining Inside 919 and meeting other "micro" business owners in the Triangle area.
I grew up in Central Pennsylvania and went to the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg Virginia. I've spent the majority of my adult life in the Kitchen & Bath Industry. I enjoy golf, cooking and gardening in my limited free time these days. Melinda and I have a 14 year old lab named George and he is the love of our life.
My Ideal Referral is:
My ideal customers are homeowners with a need to update their kitchen or bathroom. I also work with quality contractors such as Jeff Wiblitzhouser (Inside 919) and other trades who have a need to send clients for designs and material selections.
My Ideal Referral Partner is:
Builders, contractors, architects, real estate agents, other trades such as plumbing supply , tile retailers and interior designers.
HI Ted welcome to Inside919! It was great to see you at the big lunch. I hope this network does very well for you. Your store is so lovely to tour and your work so good. You can also take a look at my "Day 5 — Inside 919 Adventure — My List" blog post for some tips on making your presence known here. Look forward to seeing you at events like the Third Thursday this afternoon later. Yay for Melinda too!
Welcome to Inside919 Ted. I think we met a couple of years ago (maybe an Apex Chamber event?). Glad Jeff invited you to join us. Please check out some Groups that may interest you (Contractors & Property Owners would be a good one) & definitely try to make some of the social events like the Big Lunch, Tuesday Coffee Breaks or Final Friday Forum. Hope to see you soon!
