I’m the Lead over Special Projects. I oversee building custom projects for customers at Rustica.
How would you describe a typical day at work?
You’ll always find me welding or woodworking. We are always creating something her at Rustica. So you’ll always find me building something. I get the design plans and then make it happen.
How did you get started in your field?
Tinkering and building is in my blood, I guess. Growing up, I’ve only ever wanted to build things, from legos to cars. It’s always made me happy. I helped my dad build a Jeep rock crawler as a kid, then got my first car when I was 14, it was a free 1982 Plymouth Turismo. This lady had a bunch of cars in her yard and I just knocked on the door and asked her if I could have one. She said I could pick from 3 of the cars and the choice was easy; I chose the only one that ran.
I initially got my start in construction, but I’m a mechanic by trade. I build furniture at home, but bike building is what I really get into. Building motorcycles and cars is my hobby. I was working in construction up at Sundance when I got this job at Rustica and it just fit right in with my experience.
What is your favorite part of the design and building process?
Designing and planning is nice but I’m just really happy when I get the plans in front of me and can start building. You begin with nothing and when you’re done, you have something amazing. I love the instant gratification of building.
Where do you find inspiration?
If I’m not building, I like to go hiking and riding through the trails with my wife and my son. Being in the outdoors, riding my bike and spending time with my family is so relaxing and helps me think. Moab is my favorite place to go, whether it be riding or hiking. We also have property and are clearing the land so we can build a family cabin. In the meantime, it’s our own private campground.
This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture
