Andres Olivas Diaz talks about the golden rule with respect and a quiet assurance that there is really no other gauge for an honorable life. He values family, integrity, hard work and faith, and he makes it a point to do at least one good turn each and every day. As for family, it is everything to Andres. "I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my wife and two children," he says. Andres wants to become an expert in his field, looks forward to finishing his degree and longs to one day treat his wife and kids to a Disney cruise. Oh, and don't forget golf—as in dreaming of a score in the 70s!
Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Andres moved with his family to South Haven, Michigan, in the sixth grade. Following graduation from South Haven High School, Andres embarked on a two-year mission trip in Mesa, Arizona in 2008. It was an experience he "will always treasure," even though it forced him to "relearn" the Spanish that had grown rusty during years in Michigan.
When Andres returned from the mission trip in 2010, he married his beautiful high school sweetheart and started school that same year. Throughout his life, Andres worked with his uncle, a general contractor, doing all kinds of installations and renovations. He has also worked on golf courses, in restaurants, for Gentex Corporation and as a substitute teacher and Spanish translator. "Maestro is all about doing big things!" he says. "It's exciting to see where Maestro is headed and that it offers the perfect solution to help companies perform beautifully."
