Carpenter

I attended St. Paul Technical College after high school to study carpentry, and 20 years later, I’m still enjoying being a carpenter. My goal each day is to measure twice and cut once; it may take a bit longer, but I take pride in my work and strive to be as efficient as possible. I also try to always be looking ahead. That may be as simple as making only one trip to the tool room for multiple tasks, or as grand as envisioning how projects are going to turn out.

Favorite Tool:

My coffee mug, and then my hands after I drink the coffee.

Talents & Facts:

I can juggle. I love performing magic. Poker is one of my favorite hobbies, along with fishing in the Boundary Waters and coaching hockey.
