Preview: I have always had a passion for building and design. As a child, in my free time I would work on projects in my parent’s garage in Bradenton, FL where I grew up. One time, I even tried to carve a dugout canoe from a block of wood.

Some of my first construction projects were working on and remodeling large boats.
