I grew up in the construction industry working for my father running heavy equipment at the age of 8 years old, to running a jack hammer to shoveling in the trenches to working long hours repairing trucks and heavy equipment. Growing up taking direction from a strong Italian background has taught me to have a hard work ethic which I feel is rare in todays society.
