Meet the Team


Jason: Professional Handyman Technician

Jason’s journey into craftsmanship began as a teenager when he started building and designing outdoor furniture. His passion for woodworking and carpentry led him to become a journeyman carpenter 17 years ago in Washington State.

Driven by his love for rivers, mountains, and open spaces, he made the move to Montana, where he worked in a wooden boat shop in the Paradise Valley, refining his woodworking skills. Over the years, he has gained valuable experience with local custom home builders, improving his finish carpentry skills.

Jason’s love for the outdoors led him to explore other areas within the industry. He worked in quality control and product development for a gear manufacturer, where he even developed sewing skills. Recently, he pursued upholstery studies at FLC in Minnesota while contributing to a furniture manufacturer’s design team, working on upholstery projects, and taking on custom built-ins.

As a true maker at heart, Jason thrives on versatility, with the ability to work with various materials and continuously expand his skill set. Outside of work, he finds joy in mountaineering, river sports, hiking, fishing, hunting, and photography.

With Jason’s experience, passion for craftsmanship, and adventurous spirit, we’re excited about the contributions he brings to our team.


Elijah : Professional Handyman Technician

Meet Elijah, Our Newest Handyman!

We’re thrilled to introduce Elijah to our growing team! After realizing that college wasn’t the right path for him, Elijah embarked on a fulfilling career in the trades. Inspired by his father’s expertise in fixing and building, he developed a deep passion for hands-on work. Dedicated to helping others, Elijah’s journey began in Vermont, where he often lent a hand to fix things for his community, always eager to tackle new challenges and expand his skills. Elijah thrives on challenges and seizes every opportunity to learn and connect with people, especially here in Montana. With experience across various trades, he’s earned the reputation of being a Jack of all trades, inspired by his ultimate goal of building his own home.

Outside of work, Elijah enjoys immersing himself in the great outdoors. You’ll often find him hiking, camping, skateboarding, and fishing. But his true passion lies in woodworking, where he finds joy in crafting high-quality pieces. After a lifetime of travel and diverse experiences, Elijah has finally settled in Montana, ready to forge his own path and build a fulfilling life in this beautiful state. Join us in welcoming Elijah to the team! We’re excited to have him on board and can’t wait to see the great things he’ll accomplish with us.


Kristen: Executive Assistant

With a knack for organization and a passion for efficiency, Kristen has joined us, having spent her career fostering business growth and development. As a dedicated mom of three boys, she brings a wealth of experience in balancing priorities and fostering growth.

In her free time, she dabbles in amateur DIY projects, adding a creative touch to her skill set. Beyond the office, you can often find her exploring the outdoors and taking on new adventures with her family.


Emily: Office Manager

Emily, Peter’s wife and business cohort, has been a part of our team since the beginning. She manages to maintain a full-time job as a veterinarian here in the Gallatin Valley while helping with various administrative tasks for Heritage Handyman in her time off. 

Emily grew up in the Gallatin Valley where she would eventually attend Montana State University and obtain a degree in Microbiology. She then went on to attend veterinary school in Pullman, Washington where she obtained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. After practicing for a couple of years in Helena, MT she is excited to be back home, close to family, friends, and beautiful mountains.

While Emily has a passion for the health and well-being of animals, she also has a passion for interacting and connecting with clients. This motivation has extended over into her role within Heritage Handyman, connecting with business clients and partners alike. Emily enjoys working behind the scenes in various aspects to help keep Heritage Handyman moving.


Peter: Owner

Peter, our founder and fearless leader, is a Montana native hailing from Choteau, MT. He grew up on a Hutterite colony where he learned the value of hard work and versatility. His father was a carpenter, so he gained many valuable insights from a young age in this field. As a general laborer on the colony he also learned numerous different tasks as they related to a mostly self-sufficient way of living. Much of Peter’s business acumen and “out-of-the box” thinking can be attributed to watching his grandfather who founded and ran Montana Eggs, LLC, selling Hutterite eggs to local and national chain grocery stores. Peter’s grandfather started this business venture in Great Falls, MT and it has now become a multi-state operation with clients including Costco, Sam’s Club, and Walmart. 

After leaving the colony and spending many years in sales (from selling cars with Lithia to listing houses as a real estate agent with Keller Williams), Peter decided to leap into business ownership. Heritage Handyman began as Helena Handyman in Helena, MT, and while Helena offered a great community in an up-and-coming area, Peter and his wife, Emily, decided to move to Bozeman to become part of a larger community and to be closer to Emily’s family and homeland. Thanks to our growing clientele, Heritage Handyman has continued to thrive and we look forward to continuing to earn clients for life.
