What is your favorite aspect of your job?
Being able to provide for my family. I have a handful of kids. Not two handfuls, just one. Five kids, three boys and two girls.
What brought you to the construction industry and what made you stay?
Just being able to make better money than where I was working originally.
What is your favorite project you have worked on?
The Hollywood Casino down in Columbus. I liked the hanging of the soffits above the cashier stations, it was neat.
What hobbies do you have outside of work?
I fish and have a little bit of a farm. I have three cows and a few horses on the farm.
What’s one unique thing about you that you would want a coworker to know?
I can’t think of anything too different really. I’m left handed, but that’s not much different. They say you live 7-8 years shorter life when you’re left handed, but I haven’t experienced that yet. Haha.
