If you could build anything, what would it be?

I have always had the desire to build a Timber/Log Cabin using all classic techniques and joinery. The final products of such craftsmanship always blow me away. Also, if I got the chance to build one, I would have to build my own Cedar Canoe to compliment it.


What’s your first memory or activity related to current occupation?

My first memory of my current occupation would be working on the Beam Line in Precast. When I first started at Molin as a Safety Professional, I worked on the line to allow myself to better understand our processes. It was a fun but challenging task and I really learned a lot about the way our precast is made.


If you could trade places with anyone for a day, who would it be?

If I could trade places with anyone for a day, I would want it to be someone that settled in the Western Frontier in the mid to late 1800s. I always wondered what it must have been like to traverse the Rocky Mountains while traveling on horseback.
