What brought you to The Forge?

I grew up in Laramie, Wyoming, and about 11 years ago I started custom painting motorcycles and cars. When I realized I could make a career out of something I really enjoyed, I went WyoTech and got an A.A. in business management, specializing in street rod fabrication, custom paint and collision/refinishing. I came to The Forge after about 10 years working at some of Colorado's best hot rod shops .

What's your role at The Forge now?

I concentrate on sheet metal and chassis fabrication. People say I'm both detail oriented and creative. I think that comes from loving my trade and being very dedicated to doing it well - to always improving.

I've been married for nine years to my wife, Sarah, and we have a two-year-old son Kingston. I love custom fabricating motorcycles, camping, rock climbing, shooting and cruising in my '49 Chevy Deluxe with my family.
