How's it goin peeps?!
I'm Marshall, I've been working here at Koostik for just about a year now, and am long time friends of the Simon family! Being a part of the Koostik team has been my first major experience of woodworking and I have been loving it thus far! It's an intense and exciting learning process as well. One of the things I love about working in the shop environment is how unique and detailed every piece can be. Each piece we make here has it's own characteristics and features that make it stand out. I have really enjoyed learning about the types of wood we use and how they come together from start to finish!
Now for a bit about my own creative background. I've been a musician for about 15 years now, so working here is an awesome benefit simply because I love music. Writing music has become a huge part of who I am. I play guitar, bass guitar, and drums, but electric guitar is really all I play most of the time. I love tackling new instruments and recently got to learn the mandolin for a cover we did at our church - so cool! I've played in a number of bands over time and have recently been working on a new project with some guys I've been playing with for a while.
I'd love for you to check out some music of mine if you have a chance! I play in a band by the name 'Jay J Matott & the Arctic'. We released an album by the name 'To the Big River' which is available on iTunes! Take a listen to our song 'Morning Sun'. Thanks for reading!
