The Oak Park HandyHuman is a true local, family business that was born out of a lifelong love for making homes functional and beautiful.
I’ve worked in the housing industry throughout my entire career and am obsessed with all things architecture, restoration and design. As a second-generation home professional, I grew up with a reverence for home construction and maintenance, and bring that passion to all of my clients today. I strongly believe that nothing is more important than feeling comfortable and safe in your home, and that is the spirit that drives my approach to customer service and workmanship. Unlike other handyman companies in the area, we are located right here in Oak Park and have a small team that you’ll come to know as regular clients.
Since I’m also an Oak Park homeowner, I am intimately familiar with the joys and challenges of owning an old home. In fact, I’m currently tackling a whole slew of DIY projects to restore and expand my house, and am chronicling my journey (and all the ups and downs) in my blog .
Running this small, family business is my dream and I feel so lucky to be doing what I love right here in my own community. One of my favorite parts of this work is meeting the amazing members of our Tri-Village (Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park) and helping them keep their homes happy, healthy and safe.
