As an experienced Design Consultant, Wilson works with customers to design the right shades, drapes, shutters, or other window covering for newly constructed homes, remodeling projects, or for people simply looking to refresh the look of their space. Before joining Budget Blinds, Wilson graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from the University of Georgia (Go Bulldogs!) and was in the HR and technology industries for 15 years. Nowadays, Wilson values his ability to go into each consultation without a preconceived game plan so he can be creative and match each client with their perfect window covering. He also has previous experience on the installation side of things, so he offers valuable insight from the beginning of the process to the end. Home automation has recently sparked his interest, as it reflects the state of the world and the advances technology has made. He also loves how Budget Blinds has a superior selection and high-quality vendor partners compared to competitors! Outside of work, Wilson loves spending time with his two daughters, mountain biking, playing tennis, running, hiking, or making music.
