Paul and his wife, Laura, opened Handyman Matters in April 2014 with the goals of providing the very best service and craftsmanship to residential and commercial customers in central Ohio. Together they have worked hard to grow their business while maintaining their company core values. Paul grew up in Indiana and attended Purdue University where he graduated with a B.S. in horticulture and business. Prior to starting Handyman Matters, Paul was a regional sales manager and researcher for the largest flower breeding company in the world. Having always enjoyed home improvement, Paul felt that a Handyman Matters business would be challenging way to utilize his prior career skillsets while providing a great service to the local communities. Outside of work, Paul enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters, hiking, biking, and being the family's handyman.
Prior to starting Handyman Matters, Laura had many careers including teaching and coaching. She attended Purdue University and earned a B.A. in History and English and a M.A. in History. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her family, biking, running, and being active.
