I was born and raised in the Methow Valley. I started learning the trades very young, building houses on a crew. Feeling restless in my twenties, my wife, Shanon, and I packed up these skills and headed down to California, where I established myself as a successful handyman and improv musician in Marin County.
I focused on many of the jobs contractors tend to outsource: floors, drywall,tile, painting, and more. The business thrived, but, sadly, after 12 years away, my brother who had been living with leukemia was not in the best of health. Shanon and I moved back to the Methow Valley to support him and my family in his hard-fought battle.
I am now the proud Dad of two strong boys, Chicane and Forrest, and the owner of Noah Construction, which specializes in remodeling. I also have a side business as a wedding and event DJ, and can sometimes be found on the stage of the Theater playing any number of roles, and playing music preferably improvisational.
