While we don't often see accent walls in the traditional sense anymore, we have noticed other types of feature walls making their way into current design trends...
Joined The Chervin Family In:
- June 2001
Previous Industry Experience:
- Started at Chervin working in the Kitchen Machining department; from there became a Supervisor in the Hardware department, then worked in Shipping & Receiving for a while before transitioning to Engineering
- I've been managing Engineering since 2017; every day is unique, filled with meetings, phone calls, delegating, and lots of answering questions!
Deanna and I got married in 2008. We have two sons and a daughter, and family means the world to us!
Most Unique Project
My team worked on a sliding bookcase door a while ago - it was challenging to design, but so rewarding for everyone involved in the end!
"Alone we can do little; together we can do so much." - Helen Keller
Current Personal Dream Design:
My favourite wood right now is Rift White Oak. I also enjoy mixing rustic elements into a transitional design; details like x-frame ends on an island or reclaimed wood
Happy this fad is over:
Cathedral-style doors - they can be beautiful, but have to be installed in the right environment and made of the right wood species to feel current
Playing with my kids (building toy trains together, for one!), and tinkering around the house
Hobbies I'd Like To Resurface:
Hockey and baseball
A Saturday morning breakfast of bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns. I'm also a grilled cheese and macaroni expert! :)
Taco salad has been my absolute favourite for many years - it's usually my birthday meal request! I also enjoy a bowl of Raisin Bran just about any time of the day - extra raisins, please.
