Anthony - Owner
I am a fourth-generation mason and chimney expert. I started working under my Uncle and father at the age of 12 on summer breaks from school. Fast forward to now, I am a proud owner of a successful business that is continuing to draw upon a depth of familial knowledge that’s become increasingly scarce in this day and age. I want every customer to have a positive experience, not only with the quality of work but with the standard of customer service that I set for all of my staff. I am a firm believer in goodwill above all else. I wanted to create a company that would have a lasting impact on my employees and community. When I am not at Four Winds, my favorite way to spend my time is camping with my beautiful wife Laura and our kids Evelyn & Michael.
