ABOUT THE WOODSMAN
I graduated from the State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry with a B.S. in Forest Engineering (1998). Responding to a life-long desire to serve in the military I made a radical decision and enlisted in the USMC as an Infantryman. 10 days after graduating college I found myself on the historic yellow footprints at Parris Island, SC. After 15 years of active duty and being promoted to a desk I elected to take the Marine Corps up on a rare, but timely, opportunity to retire early as a Major in 2013.
Jesus became real to me in 2008 and radically changed my heart. This business is a culmination of the various passions he wove within me. I love the outdoors, physical activity, problem-solving, physics, and serving the needs of others. Outside of spending time with my wife and three children, there is no other thing I would rather be doing. To work as an advisor and steward of God's magnificent creation is a privilege that brings me great joy.
The Woodsman started out as a tree service business. However, after attending an urban wood use conference in 2016 I caught the milling bug. Soon after I invested in an Alaskan Chainsaw Mill and a very inexpensive, small, manual bandsaw mill. The results were awesome, but the process was painfully slow. With the size of the trees I was taking down and considering the sheer volume of wood I was dealing with I invested in the Timberking 2500.
Over time we have largely transitioned out of the tree service business in order to focus on milling and the development of our Agribusiness.
