I was interested in welding because it seemed cool, like the “King of the Trades”, and I liked the money. I was an after school welder’s helper and tested for my first pipe certification at age 17.

I have 5 years experience in prefab pipe and power plant shutdowns. I love my job because I get to teach the next generation of America’s youth. I think Western Welding Academy has an advantage over other schools because we have the best instructors. When I am not welding I enjoy riding dirtbikes.
