The challenges of taking a space that is old and turning it into something great is very satisfying. My main goal is finding all the parts and making sure that they fit in the correct spot.
I grew up in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, yes I was a Skipper. What a lame mascot... From early on, I loved working with my hands and creating. I knew that the traditional education was not for me, but I still had the desire to learn. Trade school and on-site education fit the type of learning that I needed.
With a young family, I found a great spot to learn the trade with a remodeling contractor and provide for them. We were doing just about every aspect of our projects, from foundations, framing, exteriors, trimming, drywall, tile and everything in-between.
This was a great stepping stone to start out on my own in 2010, not necessarily by choice, but the best thing that could have happened to my professional career. With the mindset to always strive to do better, many people have come along side me to help to find best processes to fulfill this need.
