So, it’s my son’s first birthday this month and my wife decided that it’s going to be viking themed. I decided that in light of the theme he needs a toboggan (since winter is coming) shaped like a viking ship. Some 5/8” ply, a few lag-bolts, and a Kreg Jig later the viking ship rises!
At the age of three, in his grandparents’ family room, an uncle gave Trevor a child-size saw, hammer, and screw-driver as a Christmas gift. Through the acrid haze of his grandfather's cigar smoke, he sawed the legs off of his grandmother's coffee table. Thus began his journey into carpentry, woodworking, and construction.
Through observation and first-hand lessons passed on from his uncle and grandfather, Trevor’s passion for how things work and how to make them better flourished.
His first professional foray into woodworking was as a service technician for a premium furniture house. From there, he got involved in historic home restoration. Trevor’s next step was commercial construction as the punch-list man for a large development company. Then, he struck out on his own, renovating kitchens and bathrooms and installing tile and hardwood flooring. At each step, his skill and love of craftsmanship continued to grow.
As a Project Manager and Procurement Specialist with The Affordable Housing Conservancy, Trevor assisted in the management of a weatherization agency consisting of 25 employees and a budget of $5.4 Million. He oversaw the purchase of $2.5 million in materials and equipment necessary for project completion. He negotiated contracts, resource staffing, and sub-contracted labor in compliance with New York State procurement practices. Trevor was also responsible for bidding and negotiating $1.5 million in sub-contracted labor. His most successful project was the completion of a $500,000 weatherization project in a ten-story high-rise.
