Q: What is your favorite part about working at G&W?
I like that G&W has small town values, but still does work in some of America’s biggest cities. G&W isn’t simply about turning out projects. Instead, we take the time to produce quality designs that we are proud to put our name on and treat all people involved, from design through construction, with the same respect. These things match up with how I was raised and make G&W a great place to work.
Q: If given a chance, who would you be for a day and why?
Sylvester Stallone back in his prime. I loved the Rocky and Rambo movies when I was growing up and always wanted to be like him. I learned about his story of how he got started in show business and how he refused to give up until he achieved his goals. It’s one of those inspirational things that stick with you.
Q: When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing in your free time?
A couple of my real passions are wood working/carpentry and bow hunting. I love working out in the shop building beds, tables, entertainment centers, etc. This passion originated while working for my dad building houses throughout high school. My deer hunting passion started at a young age and has continued to grow since then.
Q: What is something you would like to learn to do?
Tig weld. I’ve only stick welded and mig welded a handful of times and I would love to master the different techniques of welding.
Q: What is something about yourself that might be surprising?
I restored a 1967 Chevelle SS with my dad my senior year of high school. It took a little over a year to complete. We completely disassembled the car all the way down to the frame and began piecing it back together as we refinished each part. It was an awesome experience and I enjoyed every minute of it! Nowadays we take it to car shows throughout the summer and have even won a few awards.
