Location: Yakima, WA.

I've been in the construction game since the age of 15 and never strayed away from it. I started with a shovel or broom in my hand and worked my way up from there. 39 years combined experience with the last 28 years specializing on strictly finish carpentry/contractor mostly in the Southern California area.

I got extremely lucky connecting with a company called Akins Development Company. Akins was a split division company having 3 divisions, a division for single family production homes, a division for multi occupancy dwellings and a separate division run by Carl Akins that built some of the largest and most expensive homes/estates in the Southern California area and even in other areas outside of that.

If you are familiar with Southern California's beach and inland areas you'll know of some of the homes I'm talking about. After Akins sold the company, I freelanced by word of mouth from there until 2001 when I moved to Yakima Washington.

High end finish carpentry is something you have deep inside you and you either have it or you don't. Quality woodworking has been my life's passion and I can honestly say if it wasn't for the damned paper work of contracting, I never worked a day in my life !!

I loved every project and the daily challenges of pulling off the impossible !!
