How did you become a part of Wellbuilt? I think Mitch and I had a mutual contact and I reached out to him to see if he was looking for carpenters, I was doing a lot of carpentry and project management. So, we got together. The job interview was interesting, we had a few pints of beer. I managed to step in as they started a project to remodel a penthouse and prove my worth.
What do you do for Wellbuilt? A bit of everything, starts at the bidding and client meeting, to proposal, and on to project management on site. Bringing all the trades together and getting the job done, all the way till closing when I do the handover.
What's your favorite thing about working for Wellbuilt? The work culture I’d say. Everyone gets along with each other and catches up outside of work hours.
Miss most about home? The beach. And family BBQs. But definitely the beach.
What do you do on your last day on Earth? It's kind of boring, but I'd spend it with my wife and daughter.
Things on your bucket list? Just ticked one off recently which was to see the Rolling Stones before they kick the bucket. Haven't done Africa yet. I'm big into animal documentaries. Ha one of those "you don't know this about me."
What did you want to be when you grow up? I wanted to play NBA basketball. (Laughs) I had all the playing cards and was convinced I was going to play for the Charlotte Hornets.
Favorite piece of architecture? New York as a whole, it's pretty amazing. You never get bored flying over the city. I always have my forehead planted on the window while we land.
Finish this sentence,”right now I'm really into…..” baby stuff.
Next big adventure planned? Becoming a parent.
