What brought you to the Kingston area and keeps you in this area?
I moved to Sleightsburg with my family when I was in the first grade. I grew up on the Hudson ice skating, jumping ice cakes, riding our bikes everywhere including to Rosendale and Poughkeepsie, building duck blinds on Sleightsburg flats, and canoeing on the river and creek. We walk,ran and sometimes hopped a train to Kingston Point for swimming. I never wanted to leave. In order to stay here I knew I had to be in my own business. I started a construction business. My love for old buildings led me into Historic Restoration work which is a significant part of our business.  .
