Timmy comes from a family of locksmiths. His dad, brother, two uncles, and four cousins are all locksmiths.
Growing up, his dad would bring him to help out on jobs when he was just 8 years old. By the time he was 11, he was already changing locks, and by high school, he could complete almost any type of locksmith service needed.
When deciding a profession, his dad encouraged him to follow his passions, but advised him to pick a trade that would keep food on the table. He thought about acting and was even in a musical, but decided to follow along family tradition and pursue a career as a locksmith. In 2017, with 10-15 years experience, he started his own locksmith business and is glad he did.
He loves being a locksmith and looks back on his experience learning about locksmith services growing up as a blessing. What he likes about being a locksmith is the challenge, no job is ever the same, the flexibility, and meeting new people.
His favorite type of job is repairing older mortise lock sets. These types of locks are hard to get replacements and the way to fix it is to take the whole thing apart. There’s about 50 pieces that make up this lock and it’s like a puzzle to figure out how all the pieces fit together. He loves the challenge and finds it incredibly rewarding when the problem is solved.
Outside of being a locksmith, Timmy loves video games, freestyle beatboxing, being a church youth leader, and spending time with his family.
