When you get away, where is “away”?
AG: Usually to one of our great hiking locations with my wife and daughter. Bent Creek, Blue Ridge Parkway or a number of waterfalls in the region. I also enjoy tinkering, as my wife puts it, in my basement/shop on any number of projects such as motorcycle restoration/maintenance, wood working, welding, and home brewing.
Being a member of the Asheville Home Builders Association provides me the opportunity to:
AG: Be involved with my fellow builders and suppliers as we continue to build and develop our wonderful mountain living experience. I also enjoy being part of the Parade of Homes Committee as we shape and improve the event for all involved.
What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
AG: All of them, but usually steer away from dusting.
Name 3 things that this group doesn’t know about you, of which only 2 are true.

What is your “go to” song for karaoke?
