Hometown: I was born in New Jersey, spent my childhood in Wyoming till the age of 11 then moved to North Carolina.
What pushed me to construction: I got my start in construction very early during summers working with my father. I was helping with his small remodeling, decking, roofing, handyman business as soon as I could handle a hammer, shovel, broom and dustpan. I always wanted to be as good as my father and spend as much time with him as possible. Working with him brought me much happiness and pride.
What jobs have I held: In between my many odd jobs and after restaurant remodeling, I moved back to my passion of home remodeling/building. I have been with Carolina Classic Builders for 8 years now and has allowed me to hone in my love and passion for construction and customer service.
My biggest professional accomplishment: An elaborate deck remodel. I performed 100% of the job by myself in under twelve days – including demolition!
What I like to do outside of work: I enjoy saltwater fishing, tinkering with furniture building, hiking, snowboarding and cooking! I am a large man and this engine takes premium fuel!
My passions: Being able to stand back after a job and saying to myself, “This is a job my father would be proud to say my son did this with the knowledge I passed on.” I am most passionate about my family. I love teaching my three children and passing on knowledge I gained from previous generations.
My favorite quote: “Mother is the word for God in the lips and hearts of all children” William Makepeace Thackeray and “An army of sheep led by a lion is far better than an army of lions led by a sheep.” Alexander the Great
