“I am born and raised in Las Vegas, married to my wife Carrie and we have 3 children as well Kassidy, Logan and Dexter. I love and enjoy what I do. I like our team here at Mach 1 Plumbing. We are a well-oiled machine. Our family has built Mach 1 Plumbing out of pocket, lots of sacrifices, but well worth it. My brother Doug and I started out as a handyman service to fill lost time during the recession and that took off. So, we decided to start a business on what we really know and now we have Mach 1 Plumbing. We pride ourselves in being fair and on time. We always watch and learn from everything we can. We are always trying to better ourselves as people and as a company. We look forward to working with you!!”
