One of my earliest memories is of watching a company of carpenters building my new home when I was 4 years old. I can remember being mesmerized as pieces of wood were joined together to turn an empty patch of land into a house. I feel like this experience instilled two things in me: 1. This very significant structure was built by human hands and not by magical fairies. 2. If someone works hard and skillfully, they can accomplish anything.
Now, I build and renovate homes for other people. I started my career more than 10 years ago with an apprenticeship at a furniture shop. I realized I wanted to be in the field working on buildings and went back to school at the North Bennet Street School for training as a carpenter. Currently I work on high end residential buildings and enjoy the creativity and details in the projects involved.
