What do you do?:
I am an idea guy. I go to client’s homes, listen to their needs, get a sense of their style, take measurements and design something custom for them. Once this is completed, I work with the Design Specialist and modify as needed. When a project is sold, I coordinate with the architect, obtain permits and make the project built exactly as sold and within budget. I also do bidding and draw a lot of concept drawings.
When did you start working at Lakeside?:
What do you like best about Lakeside?:
I like the owners, Matt and Dan Merrifield, the people I work with and the custom design work I am involved with.
If you could have any type of home what would it look like?:
It would be not too big, somewhere around 2,000 square feet, have a hip roof, a basement, simple design elements, understatedly elegant and practical, low maintenance, energy efficient and built to last.
I had a state general contractor’s license and used build custom homes in northern California. I worked as a commercial framer, finish carpenter and concrete former/finisher before that for ten years. I love to go backpacking and kayaking for fun.
