Installing carpet, providing excellent customer service and working hard are just a few of the many lessons learned from my dad who owned Villa Carpets in Warren, MI followed by his retirement from J.L. Hudson's in Detroit, MI after installing carpet for over 40 years. 

While attending high school at De La Salle Collegiate in Warren, MI and earning a Bachelor's degree in Marketing from Walsh College in Troy, MI, I installed carpet every weekend with my brother and dad for our family business in Warren which we operated out of my parent's home.

After my parents decided to close the family business, I realized how much I enjoyed and missed installing carpet. After working over 18 years in the marketing industry, I decided to quit my Global IT Marketing Manager position at Stefanini in Southfield, MI and take over Classic Boat Decks from Tom Robinson in Harrison Twp. I decided to change the name to Classic Boat & RV Carpet since I service the RV market as well.  

Being a business owner has allowed me more time and flexibility with my family. What I enjoy most about my job is the meticulous work and pride I take in every job I do as I treat every boat and RV like it's my own and enjoy the end result of a satisfied customer.
