I’m born and raised in Colorado. My passion is spending time with my son Oliver and my wife Liz.  In my free time I brew beer, make wine and love to go camping, hiking and hunting.
My goal is to open my own brewery and my own distillery and become an internationally recognized brand.
I believe that success is achieved by caring about people and providing the highest quality customer service possible.

I was born in Texas and after graduating from Texas Tech University in 2004 I moved to Fort Collins Colorado. For the last 15 years I have called Colorado home now. Over 3 years ago now I married my wife Cathy and made the transition to Denver. Last year we had our son Kieran and my passion is spending as much time with him and my two step kids, Madison 14, and Silas 11, as possible.
I have been in the painting industry for several years now and enjoy working for a company that strives for the highest quality and cares so much about its employees and customers. Outside of work and family I enjoy nature and live music.

I’m another of the many Midwest transplants taking advantage of beautiful Colorado.  I grew up just south of Chicago, but fell in love with the weather, people, and outdoor activities this state has to offer on my very first visit. When I moved here in 2011 I knew I had found my new home.

When I’m not at work you can find me having fun outside. I enjoy long walks on the …. just kidding! I love hiking, rafting, golfing, going to red rocks, playing yard games at jazz in the park and just about any other outdoor activity. Meeting and helping people is a passion of mine, and I can’t wait to meet you!

I was born and raised in Colorado and can’t imagine calling anywhere else home! I love living in a place with so much sunshine and diversity in people and in activities. I love fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, or pretty much anything you can do out on the water. When the weather doesn’t allow for that, you can probably find me shooting pool with friends at a dive bar.

I am new to this industry, and am so excited to make the transition to a different career and learn from a company that values transparency and kindness over all else. I have a passion for helping people and playing an active role in helping solve problems. I know that I will be able to do so on a daily basis with Kind Home Solutions.

I was born and raised in Denver. Moved away when I was 18 for 8 years and just moved back in March. I have been in the industry about 3 years now. What drew me to the role was the opportunity to help people. It’s very rewarding.


When I’m not working you can find me in the mountains fishing, rafting, camping, and hunting. Anything in the mountains is good for me. I like to make an impact by helping at animal shelters, and I used to guide fishing trips for veterans through a cool organization. My favorite food is either Mexican or BBQ!

I’m originally from Baton Rouge but the call of the mountains has landed me here in Colorado.  I love an active lifestyle and try to take advantage of all the activities so close to home.  I was drawn to this role because it allows me to speak directly with our clients and make a positive impact on their day.

In my spare time I write and produce music for many different genres for my electronic music project, Hevylo.  You will also find me spending time with my loving girlfriend, Abby and our dog Myah.

Project Supervisor

I’m originally from Illinois and I moved out to Denver with 13 of my closest friends in what we call The Mass Migration.  Painting is in my blood and I come from a long line of people who work with their hands.  My father built furniture but my uncle is the one who got me hooked on restoring Victorian homes.

Now I oversee the entire Denver area for production and I love every minute of it.  Working with Kind Homes gives me the opportunity to do what I love and give each client individualized attention which I hope shows in my work.  When I am not painting I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, our dogs, and riding my motorcycle.

I’m originally from Baton Rouge. Colorado has become my second home. I fell in love with this beautiful state 10 years ago on my first visit.  I have been in the construction industry for over 12 years, six as a lead electrician. I have met some amazing people in Colorado. We have shared knowledge, plenty of Mexican food and our passion for helping people.

I’m very appreciative to be a part of a company that is striving to be the best it can possibly be and bringing even better customer service and quality services to our Kind Home Solution family.

I am originally from Indiana but as soon as I made it out to Colorado, I knew I’d found my new home.  I’ve been in the painting industry for the last 5 years as a project supervisor and really enjoy working with clients and making their visions become a reality.

I’m originally from New York but moved out to Colorado in 2013.  I’ve been in the home service industry for the past 6 years and love working one on one with clients and seeing projects come together.

In my free time I love mountain biking, snowboarding; essentially anything very cliche in the mountains. I’m very excited to work with you!

I was born and raised in Murdock, Nebraska; I grew up on ranch.  I actually came to Colorado because of my husband’s job, he’s a coach for the Denver Broncos!  I was drawn to Kind Home Solutions because kindness is at the forefront of everything we do and that truly shows.

In my free time I love to bake, cook, and take photos.  I also tend to watch a lot of football.  I would really like to start volunteering at an animal shelter and continue making time for my hobbies. I am so excited to provide each client with an incredible experience!

I’m originally from Texas and have been in the home improvement industry for the past 6 years.  After working with thousands of clients and seeing the struggles they faced working with contractors my husband and I set out on our own journey with the mission to spread kindness.

Owning a business is obviously challenging however, the reward of building a relationship with our clients and being a part of such a personal project makes all of the work worth it.  I can’t wait for you to meet our team and experience a different kind of home service.

Corey Morgan
Field Marketing Manager

I’m passionate about helping others and love working with people that want to make a difference. Working at Kind Home Solutions allows me to do this everyday. If I can leave you with some positive energy then I know I’ve done my job.

Outside of work I like to enjoy the mountains, make music, write and hang out with my girlfriend, Audrey, and our cat, Shoshanna.

Ryan Rossell

Originally from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I moved to Colorado to be closer to my parents, sister, nieces, and nephew.  I have a passion for the outdoors; hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking.  I really enjoy meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals.

I love the vibe and people here at Kind Home Solutions which is what drew me to this company.  When I’m not enjoying the outdoors or traveling I often take in shows at the Buell Theater.  I am so happy to have made Colorado my home and look forward to a great career with Kind Home Solutions.

Joseph Bartel

I am an Oklahoma native residing in Colorado, new to the Denver area. Joining Kind Home Solutions has been multifaceted opportunity, for which I am grateful. I’m new to the industry, so it’s neat to to learn from individuals who have pertinent experience and knowledge to share, and I feel it’s a privilege to be part of professional company that believes in and abides by principles such as; diligent work, honesty, empathy, and kindness.


I aim to be a representative of these values in my daily work with Kind Home Solutions. My recent free time has been spent camping and hiking, rejuvenating a classic motorcycle, nurturing relationships, and cooking. Other current interests include; music, mountain biking, and mechanics.

I’m an Indiana native who transplanted to Colorado 10 years ago to take advantage of the 300+ sunny days a year that this wonderful place offers.  I enjoy mornings on the golf course and evenings listening to live music when the time allows.

I’ve been in the industry for nearly a decade and as a homeowner myself, I have been happy to dedicate myself to serving my clients as well as my team with the highest quality and best service you can get in the industry.
