Michael Forkas

CARPENTER

Michael has a variety of professional experience in and outside of the trades. He spent a decade working in operations for Fortune 500 companies, he worked on a charter boat crew in the USVI, as ESL teacher overseas, as well as in restaurants. Michael has an Associates degree in Liberal Studies and is a Dale Carnegie graduate.

 

Michael is always working to hone his skills in the trades and create great outcomes for our clients. He hopes to build a house for himself one day that he can pass down to his son. Michael is drawn to his work because he believes Lewis Creek sets a new standard in the industry as it relates to communication, empathy, and opportunities for professional development. He appreciates the family atmosphere and feels truly cared for as a team member.


Michael is from Burlington and currently lives in Hinesburg with two housemates. After living overseas for three years, his perception was solidified that Vermont is a one of a kind place. It's clean, safe, and beautiful. Outside of work Michael enjoys tennis, snowboarding, hiking, woodworking, and diving into whatever interests his son wants to get into next!
