Wade was born and raised in the great state of Ohio. After graduating college with a degree in geology, he moved out West to work on a trail crew with the Southwest Conservation Corps. He then transitioned from building trails to building houses and began working with Downstream in 2018.
Though he has years of experience doing maintenance and small-scale remodels, he completed his first ground-up build with Downstream.
In his free time Wade enjoys mountain biking, skiing, and wrenching on his multiple broken-down vehicles.
