A San Francisco native who now lives in the East Bay, a graduate of U.C. Berkeley, where he earned his degree in mechanical engineering and worked in that field for many years. Some of his fondest memories as a kid are of playing on the Golden Gate Park panhandle watching the fog roll down Oak St on summer evenings. After working as an engineer straight out of college and not getting enough “personal” interaction he made a change to help him satisfy his friendly, people oriented side by venturing into the arena of software consulting. He was adept at working with people while explaining technical details. Later he went on to the commercial real estate field as a construction project manager where he managed local, regional, and nation-wide projects involving construction and remodeling projects for corporate clients. Seeing that the people interaction was not fulfilling, he decided to enter to world of home improvement where he felt he could have the best of both worlds – be technical and help people on a very personal level. Coy lives with his family in the East Bay where he enjoys spending time cooking a new dish he saw on TV, going to street fairs, Belgian ales and traveling.
