I have spent 30 years in the construction trades, mostly in the countertop and cabinet business. I started a countertop shop in Toledo, Ohio, in 1994 and sold that business in 2001. It has grown to a 30 employee firm.
I now do surface restoration work in southwestern Florida, predominantly resurfacing and repairing solid surface and stone. I also write for www.countertopiq.com and my articles have appeared in Old House Journal, Solidsurface, and Countertops and Architectrual Surfaces magazines.
