As a child I was influenced by my family’s work backgrounds, which were in the design and construction fields.  My grandfather was a stone & brick mason from Italy.  The skills he brought from Europe were ever-present. When I watched grandpa do his magic, creating something from nothing, he amazed me.  I knew I wanted to be in a similar field as my grandfather when I was just a young kid.  Grandpa worked outside in unfavorable weather, however the job was always finished on time and done the right way! He instilled these traits in me when I’m creating a plaster moulding or plastering walls

When I’m on a job plastering with my team,  it’s my outlet to creativity and I enjoy it greatly.  I have been in this field for 40+ years and I still love waking up to it.  Restoring an old or damaged moulding to its original state, is extremely rewarding.  I enjoy the artisan part of the job and always will. Plastering has given me the opportunity to work in some very prestigious homes and institutions.
