House Mover / Demolisher

Mackay & Sons House Removals

I started here as a house mover and welder.  As time progressed I moved into fabrication of trailers, house moving equipment, heavy machinery parts and house stumps.  I also had to work on alot of trucks, where my duties included everything from diagnostics to repairs and all in-between. 

I then moved to Demolition Foreman and started operating a 14 Ton excavator to crush houses and clear properties.

Work Experience

Brisbane Motorcycles

When I started high school I took advantage of the work experience program, which allowed me to work one day a week at Brisbanes largest Honda, Suzuki and Ducati dealership. 

Here I had several different jobs to help learn more about the motorcycle industry. I assembled new motorcycles, carried out small repairs on some, as well as parts and accessories sales.

Spoked Motorcycle Wheelsmith

Ash's Spoked Wheels

At Ash's I was involved in all aspects of custom wheel building including Lacing, Truing, Straightening of wheels, as well as polishing, sandblasting and powdercoating.  We also built and restored a few bikes for ourselves and customers. Our top priority was always quality of work, and I believe strongly in having pride in what you have created.

Interests

My whole life I have been obsessed with all things to do with motorcycles. 

At age 15 I was 4th in Australian Amateur Freestyle Motocross. I always worked on my own bikes and could rebuild my bike at this age.

Throughout the years since I have restored and hand built my own bikes, including whole frames, tanks, seat pans and fabricated nearly every other part inbetween. 

I believe there is no better feeling that handcrafting something from nothing and having a great time doing it. 

I will not take for granted any chance to work with motorcycles or in the industry and hard work is a value that my parents instilled in me from a young age. I believe this, along with common sense would make me a great asset to your company.
