How did you get started in your industry?
In high school (during summer breaks) I would work with my father helping with his stucco business. During those years I realized that I enjoyed bringing life to an existing home, or watching how a new home transform from a piece of paper design to real life. Watching the joy in peoples faces, seeing their home and being part of that joy makes everything.
