TAU Directional Driller

I’ve had quite a few jobs since graduating. I worked as a roustabout in North Dakota for quite a few years. That’s where I acquired my CDL. I moved back to Sandpoint and drove a cement mixer for two years. I changed careers again after that and I currently work for TAU as a directional driller. We install underground utilities utilizing horizontal directional drills. We install mostly fiber optic conduit. Although sometimes we install waterlines, gas lines, conduit for power, and anything else people want to put underground.

I currently live in Sandpoint with my beautiful wife Shaylon. We have two boys who are 7 and 4 at the moment.
