More From Nathan

As I am new to the Bear Creek team, I have not worked on enough projects to say which has been my favorite. However, one of my favorite things about working at Bear Creek is the Christian values. It’s nice working with other believers and while some are not; they’re open minded. Above all else though their dedication to craftsmanship are to be commended.  I do not tend to have much down time as when I am not at work I’m either in my shop or working for The Bodging Bigfoot LLC company that I formed.  However, any time that I do have left I enjoy spending with my life.
