I was born in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. After high school I went to Carpentry/Masonry trade school and my first job was for a Roofing Company. I have a background in multiple areas ranging from masonry, framing, dry-wall, and finished concrete. I also have experience working as an Operator/Mechanic for an Excavating Company. I moved to California in 2001 and for the next decade I remodeled kitchens, bathrooms, built log cabins, and learned a great deal about finish carpentry, plumbing, and electrical. I am also EPA Lead and Mold Inspection Certified. I have been married for 6 years and have 3 kids.
