My mom told me ever since I was little I loved construction. She would drive me to a construction sites just to sit and watch all the big machines at work. Since I could hold a tool I was always trying to build things.
Being raised by a single mom my first real mentor in my life was a gentleman named Jerzy. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do. Having a mind like a sponge, I sat there and soaked up everything I could learn from him. Learning hardware specs, auto/motorcycle maintenance, electrical, construction, flipping machinery and pride in the work we completed. He had a saying,
“Do it right or don’t do it at all”.
Fast forward to 16 years old, I started going to EVIT (East Valley Institute of Technology) to study welding and fabrication. My first job was to alter some interior rod iron dog gates to a new width and a better latch design. I sketched up my design, drafting some blue prints, and then called in the material order. I worked on that first project everyday after school for two weeks making sure it was absolutely perfect. It was like I found the missing puzzle piece to my life, It just fit perfectly.
“I was that kid in High School kids came to if they needed something built or fixed”
Half way through High School My best friends dad offered me a position at his garage door repair company. Having a fabrication & mechanical back round I picked up on the work quickly. I instantly wanted to take on more responsibility and in the 8 years I was with the company I handled every aspect of the business. I pride myself on reflecting on every install or repair I’ve ever completed. I am always looking for ways to raise the quality of the work I do.
With 8 years in the industry, 3 years of metal fabrication, and the desire to keep growing it was only right to focus on what made me happy. I started my business with a focus on installing & fabricating custom garage door systems and top quality repair work.
