Doug is from York, New York and joined the Carpentry program because he likes working with his hands and "building things". His parents have just purchased a cabinet making business and so he plans on working there after graduation.
I asked Doug why he wanted to come South with us: "Norm, its NEW ORLEANS!" He also thought he would learn more from the increased time spent working at carpentry. Now he's here, Doug likes the weather, the beach, and says he is always busy.
