I came to work for Western Masonry full time in 1998, but had worked part time since I was 16 years old. The Frisch's have been a part of my life and my family's life since I was 2 years old. I am proud to consider the Frisch's and all the employees of Western Masonry my family.

When I started working full time for Western, I was employed as a Masonry Laborer (Hodcarrier). It was during this time that I really started to learn the meaning of honest hard work. I would hustle, listen, and learn from people who were truly artists. Now, I am honored to be under these same "artists" as an apprentice Mason. I am now learning what perfectionism and attention to detail means. These brothers I work with everyday are here to give the client the same job and respect that they would expect to receive if it was their own home. I am thankful everyday that I am able to learn from these masters, and I only hope that one day they will be as proud of my work when I am a Journeyman.

During my career I have worked on many award winning projects, had homes I have worked on featured in magazines, and have worked on homes that were simple, yet someone’s dream come true. No matter what the project, I will always strive to work hard, pay attention to even the smallest detail, and respect the client. I could not have asked for a better company to work for. They always have taken care of the people they work for and the people that work for them. I am truly honored to be a part of this family.
