At just 19 years old, he pioneered the industry of professional junk removal with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, turning a chore people avoid into an exceptional customer service experience. Then he scaled that success into three more home-service brands, WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, You Move Me, and Shack Shine under O2E Brands.
