How did you get started in the plumbing trade?
I got started in the trade when I was looking to get out of my dead end maintenance job. The driving force to leave was having to train my new boss. I was never given the opportunity to advance there, so I knew I needed to make a change. An old high school friend reached out & asked if I wanted to make that change & I immediately jumped at the chance to do so. I was also playing music in a band part time for years which didn't pay the bills much.
What do you like most about your work as a plumber?
I like a new challenge every day. Working with my hands and problem solving has always been a big thing for me. I enjoy the satisfaction of saying, "Check it out. I figured this out on my own."
What advice do you have for the younger generation entering the plumbing trade?
My advice would be to listen, take notes, & stay humble. Thinking outside of the box can be your best friend. Leave your egos at home - cockiness gets you nowhere. Work with people who will help build you up, not tear you down. Lastly, start young. I started at the ripe age of 35 and things already hurt by then.
