Instructor Info: Geoff Hawley:|
Geoff has been welding since he was 14; artistically, professionally, and just for fun! He was the original welder for the shipping container building, The Box Office, in Providence, Rhode Island, and many art installations throughout the state. Currently, he works as a Project Manager for a construction company focusing on high-end custom or restoration projects. Geoff especially enjoys working renewable/green elements as they bring the opportunity for innovation. When he’s not in our shop or on a construction site, Geoff spends much of his time outdoors, hiking and fishing.
