"Chris is like a brother to me. He's been so supportive and encouraging of my skills which has really help boost my confidence. He doesn't see me as a competitor but as his equal and we lift each other up. At the end of the day, we love what we do, we work hard and we have a blast."

"I've worked on a ton of projects through the years where it was frowned upon to take pictures on the job because us plumbers should just keep our heads down and blend into the background.

That pushback definitely wore on me but Chris has smashed that narrative and since day one of tagging along with him on jobs, he's snapped pics and encouraged me to share my work."
