About Us

Gonzalo Zapata


Gonzalo is retired from the University of Texas at Austin, Cockrell School of Engineering.  After 28 years of managing renovation projects and helping faculty, staff, and students with their “to do lists”, he has decided to offer those services to the Hays County Community.  Gonzalo started A-Friend Concierge Service as a vision to lend an affordable  helping hand when needed.   Many times,  the smallest help can be the biggest factor in getting things done.
