Brian began his carpentry journey as a summer job in the 90s while he taught high school science during the winters. Eventually, he decided he liked working with his hands as a carpenter more than teaching in a classroom. Now with 35 years of experience under his belt, he is most known for his fine finish carpentry, award-winning sawhorse design, and jobsite workstations. Before coming to work at TreHus, he worked for companies such as OA Design Build where he framed and trimmed several award-winning projects. Brian loves any opportunity to share the craft of carpentry with others. He is extremely passionate about doing good work that will stand the test of time as well as teaching apprentices his methods and efficient processes. Brian has been featured in numerous Master Carpenter articles where he shares his expertise in both Fine Homebuilding and JLC magazines.
