Hi, my name is Desmond. I'm 36 years of age, a non drinker, non-smoker, very dependable, athletic, and thoroughly detailed person with great work ethics. I can work as a foreman, super handyman, or master carpenter.
I am able to work in all weather and a problem solver, whatever the task may be. I can work supervised or unsupervised. I can manage workers (laborers, porters, and handymen) and outside contractors if necessary, and I have a great attitude.
I have worked in construction/trades for 16 years. I'm experienced in the following:
