July of 2010 marked the conception of my half-baked-idea-baby and May of 2011 marks its birth and the maiden voyage of my trusty tag-along camper, “Taco”. All of my tools; a few belongings; Zulu short spear and cat, Sophie, will be accompanying me on an odyssey through as much of this country as we can stand.
My education and training is in Fine Arts. I still paint – more for work than pleasure, but I’m working on that. The need to create and physically labor on a regular basis made construction an easy career choice and a great way to pay my bills after college. I’ve worked construction on and off (mostly on) for over a decade.
Going out on my own a few years back was a crucial, pivotal and necessary change in my life. I’ve combined my fine arts background with my construction skills and I fabricate just about anything I can wrap my head around. I still do lots of rough and fine carpentry, furniture and architectural details. I’ve worked on houses of all sizes, shapes and materials for 7 years and I’ve been a home owner and landlord for about a million, so I’m well acquainted with most residential woes.
Come up with a project for me and show me how awesome your part of the world is. I already have a few projects lined up – I’m looking for anything you got, anywhere, just send me a proposal. I’ll be working for food and gas money to propel me and my home on wheels around the country. This adventure will be heavily documented, so be forewarned…
