Brian’s passion for his craft as a cabinet and furniture maker started at San Luis Obispo High School, during woodworking and ceramics courses. At the University of California at Santa Cruz, he became immersed in courses on social change theory, renewable energy and sustainable living. An internship at the Mid Western Renewable Energy Association, afforded him the opportunity to help adults and children learn about the benefits of sustainable living. Before graduating with a B.A. in Community Studies, Brian also ran one of the world’s largest sustainable living and renewable energy fairs.
Brian traveled to South America, where he gained a deeper appreciation of how some of our wasteful actions on the local level can have a global impact. In 2005, Brian and his brother started Green Goods to help preserve the earth’s resources and promote healthy, equitable communities.
Today, Brian is co-owner and manages Green Goods cabinet shop located in Atascadero. Brian’s cabinets and woodwork are inspired by a variety of styles and materials. Working with reclaimed and FSC certified woods provide the challenge to preserve the original characteristics of the materials while still create something unique. From rustic to modern, reclaimed to new, Brian and the team at Green Goods have the style, the experience and the skills you are looking for to help you preserve the earth and promote the well being of your family.
