My apprenticeship for woodworking began in 1974 as I studied woodworking and carpentry at Ranken Technical Institute in St. Louis, Mo. From there I apprenticed 4 years as a union carpenter and then became a journeyman carpenter. For 4 years I worked as a residential carpenter on custom homes. The next 11 1/2 years were focused on commercial finish carpentry in high rise office buildings in downtown St. Louis. In 1989 I began working as a finish carpenter at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, NV. A year later I was sent to work on the island of Kauai, Hawaii where I worked on two hotel resorts for one year. I returned to Las Vegas where I continued working until I retired from carpentry in 1995.
Since 1995 I have worked as a residential real estate agent in Las Vegas. My interest and passion for woodworking continues as I have a shop at my house.
