Job at Strive: Carpenter. He is a carpenter with the skills to work on a house from tear down to finish work. Which includes swinging a sledgehammer to putting in kitchen cabinets.
Years worked at Strive: 10 years. He has been working with Joe Colaluca almost since the beginning of Strive. His first job for Joe was a painting job. Then he was asked to do another job. When that one was done he was asked to do the next. His ability to do many jobs well eventually earned him a full-time employee position.
One of the main challenges of his craft is rehabilitating old houses. There are many unexpected problems encountered when working on houses built before there were many building codes. He is good at looking at a problem and figuring out how to overcome it.
His favorite part of the job is doing his part to make an old broken down house, into a home that someone can’t wait to move into.
