My experience in the construction industry starts as a seven year-old boy tasked with “tarring the valleys” for a roofing job being completed by my father and grandfather in Pennsylvania. My father, grandfather and two uncles were carpenters, masons and roofers. To say the least, a priceless education was in store for me! During high school, I was a bricklayer’s apprentice which afforded me the opportunity to save for a college education. As an adult I worked with my father-in-law who was a General Contractor in Florida. My most recent project was designing, permitting, and building my three car garage completely on my own.
