  • Todd's head shot

    Todd P.

    Service Professional

    Todd was born and raised in Butler, PA with his two brothers and wonderful parents. His father was a Union plumber/steamfitter and applied his mechanical aptitude to many building skills. This made him the go-to guy for neighborly home repairs or installs. He would often take Todd and his brothers, for many teaching moments or simply free labor. In fact, Todd’s immediate and extended family either worked in the trades business, or started their own. Todd followed suit with starting a business and, being appointed General Contractor, this was his first professional, yet untraditional, venture into applying his apprentice-like earned skills. When the owners parted ways, Todd stayed in that automobile industry lane and wore many hats over the next 37 years. Like his Dad, he was ever-present doing some form of trade work for neighbors or companies on the side. Building houses and remodeling was always a part of his personal life too, even now with his fiancé, Kimberly. They purchased a fixer upper in the Fox Chapel area and did a top down renovation. The joy of investing in his family tradition of quality and pride in craftsmanship recently motivated him to “come home” to the building trades. Meeting Jodi & John Hartle and the family team atmosphere at Mr. Handyman was the perfect fit. Todd is now happily following his dream and family tradition every day.
