Just about every day I get invited to look at potential home improvements. What I like most is getting to meet wonderful people along the way.
The Rocks family had called me after their home was completely ruined after a pipe burst on the second floor while they were on vacation.
After much negotiations with their insurance company, we were able to restore an empty shell of a house to a beautiful home.
The Rocks Family, Lawrence Rocks, Marlene Rocks, and Burton Rocks became not only clients but friends.

His 1973 book The Energy Crisis coincided with the 1973 oil crisis. The book prompted public appearances and influenced the creation of the U.S. Department of Energy.
Rocks' has also worked with professional baseball player Paul DeJong on the role of chemistry in baseball.

In 2018 Rocks negotiated a six-year contract extension worth a guaranteed $26 million for client Paul DeJong, the biggest contract ever signed by a Major League Baseball player with less than one full year of major league service time. Forbes SportsMoney profiled Rocks' "Quantified Intangible Sheet" evaluation methodology used in DeJong's contract extension negotiations.
