Brock

Winding my way through a maze of permits, inspections and licenses (oh my), I often wondered if this dream of mine was ever going to see the light of day. Yet every time I felt like giving up, I’d get a little reminder from the Universe that I was on the right path. Brock Riebe’s note was one such reminder.
