I have 20+ years in the carpentry industry with the last 8 years focused on scenic builds. I continue to work with the best in our business, including the top scene shops in the country, museums, theatres, convention centers and many more creative venues. I enjoyed my work with the Chicago Stagehands Local 2. I am currently a Journeyman Carpenter with the Motion Picture Studio Mechanics Local 476, helping to build Chicago's best television and movie productions.
My skills include bench top carpentry; field installs; tile and hardwood flooring; laminating; glass and acrylics machining; MIG, TIG and stick welding; gang boss leadership and blueprint interpretation. I am OSHA20 certified; Chicago supported and suspended scaffold; CPR/AED. I also hold certificates for forklift, aerial lift and Condor work vehicals. I own my own extensive tool kit and transportation.
I am very blessed to have a career I love while working with great people. When I am not strapped down to the workbench you can usually find me outdoors. I enjoy camping, canoeing and fishing. Road trips, dinners and game nights with the family are also great. When I can find the time, I like to work in my small studio creating art and projects for our family, friends and our brand new online store, Hobo Squirrel Novelties.
