What do you love about scrap metal?

I’ve always been intrigued by the variations of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, but mostly the process and cycle, from coming off the back of a customer’s vehicle to being shredded and sent out to start the metal life cycle all over again.

Favorite part of your job?

The friendships and relationships I’ve gained over the years with people from all walks of life, sharing my experience and definitely the fact there’s never a dull moment or carbon copied day in a Scrap Yard.

Advice to any new scrappers out there?

Learn the trade and the Industry thru all the great resources available this day and age. Understand your reputation means everything and treat the business’s and its employees the same way you want to be treated, it goes along way.

Spending time with my wife and boys, always an adventure, and writing and playing music.
