About Gabriel Lizarraga
Hello, my name is Gabriel Lizarraga. I am 17 years old and live with my parents and three brothers. I have always loved working hard and getting my hands dirty. Before I worked at Woodland Deck Company, I worked on several farms and had been given several different tasks. One of the jobs I had was getting up at 3:00 A.M. to milk cows. My parents also own a farm and I have spent many hours cleaning the barn, working on tractors, and baling hay. My dad is a mechanic so I have also learned how to work on cars. I started working at Woodland at the age of 16. Almost immediately, Matt and the others trusted me and gave me a lot of responsibilities. My job at Woodland varies from shop work to various types of field work. You may see me tearing out your old deck or I may be helping build your new deck.
In the evenings and on weekends, I usually spend time with family or friends. At the age of 13, I started taking guitar and bass guitar lessons. I have enjoyed both ever since. I also have a 1980 Ford F250 that I enjoy working on. My other hobbies include hunting, fishing, and hiking.
Finally, my time at Woodland has been some of the best of my life so far. Steve, the owner, cares about his employees. He is always putting what is best for the team first, not what is best for him. I love working and talking to each person in this group. You will not find a harder working or friendlier group of people than those of Woodland team.
