Why do you work with Big Ideas? I enjoy meeting middle school-aged children and exposing them to basic plumbing. These young adults need exposure to the different building trades in order to foster a potential interest.
Why do you love the trades? I personally get a strong sense of accomplishment from completing a plumbing or carpentry project. I look at the talent of tradesmen being more of an art than a skill.
Why did you get started in the trades? Periodically I would accompany my father, who was a carpenter by trade, to different sideline jobs and assist on those projects. Early on I was the extra pair of hands needed at a job site. But as time went my father showed me different facets of carpentry. Eventually I became proficient with hand and power tools. I still enjoy working with my hands and engaging carpentry and plumbing projects
