I first heard about COCOON through Joe Cristaldi! We coach wrestling together, and at a wrestling tournament he asked me if I wanted to come learn a trade. I attended Lock Haven University for Physical Therapy, but I didn’t want to go to Graduate School. I did enjoy working with my hands though, so I said yes! He immediately sent a group text to the production team asking if we needed more Carpenter’s Apprentices and the rest is history!
Physical Therapy Plus – Physical Therapy Aid – monitored patients while exercising and aided them in their therapy.
My dad is a machinist by trade, so he has taught me a lot throughout the years, mostly while we work on our own house. But other than that, I don’t have any official training in the construction industry.
I think as of right now, I am known for my ability to learn. I want to understand and continue to learn the trade so that someday I may have the opportunity to become a Project Manager.
Well, I wish I didn’t have to wear a mask every day because I think our customers would say that I always have a smile on my face. Because of my general stature, I can seem intimidating, but I hope I come across as a genuine person who is approachable and friendly!
I like having the opportunity to build something – then getting to see the instant gratification in the faces of our customers and homeowners. I also enjoy seeing the final product and knowing that I got to be a part of something that is going to impact the lives of our customers.
Right now, it is wrestling season, so I am into sports. I enjoy coaching at Rustin and watching the kids improve not only in wrestling, but their lives as well. I believe wrestling helps mold young men and teaches them discipline.
When I’m not working, I’m usually at home or down at the shore, enjoying the weather and spending time with my family.
I grew up in Broomall and I still live there with my parents.
As a genuine, friendly person, who is loved by everyone.
