Travis joined Placetailor in 2012 as a Designer and Builder. He has been swinging hammers and pencils since graduating from art school in 1999 and hasn't looked back. After spending time in the great Northwest building in the rain and studying for a Masters in Architecture at the University of Washington, he arrived in Boston eager to drop some building science and to create great projects for amazing people. If you want to talk about vapor open wall sections and/or the joys of bike touring, he's certainly up for it.
Steve Daly, Master Design/Builder
617 639 0633 X6 / firstname.lastname@example.org
Steve has been putting his design and construction experience to work for Placetailor since 2012. Beginning at an early age, the craft of carpentry was passed along during a 10 year apprenticeship with his master carpenter father. Being a creative adventurer at heart, Steve expanded upon his building knowledge and attended Wentworth Institute of Technology, where he received his bachelor’s degree in architecture. He has continued to pursue his deep passion of fusing art, construction, and the human experience through professional practice, studies, and adventures both stateside and abroad. These experiences continually inform his work as a designer and builder, and are fueled by his belief that the building is ultimately for the people.
