This blog chronicles the adventures of the owner/operator of The Uncarved Block Building & Remodeling, LLC in Phoenix, Arizona. I am a licensed residential general contractor specializing in central Phoenix kitchen and bathroom remodeling who is also an avid cyclist. I hope to document my cycling adventures, provide general bike related commentary and observations, help readers gain insight into residential remodeling by discussing and photographing my work, and write the occasional how-to article about both bike repair and remodeling.
I was born in Washington D.C., and have lived in Annapolis, MD, Los Angeles, CA, and Phoenix, AZ. I graduated from Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix in 1989, and from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles in 1993. I have a bachelor’s degree in English Literature.
