By the time you reach the rocking chair , you had damn well better have done everything you wanted to do!
I grew up in a farming community with an insatiable appetite for knowing how everything around me comes apart and goes back together. Which led me to trade schools in Welding and heaving duty mechanics. Furniture and upholstery in general were no exception to this curiosity.Spending many hours in private upholstery shops in Calgary as well as Lethbridge AB stripping furniture and upholstery on my own time after working at my regular job as a mechanic, I watched and took mental notes of every detail that went into this craft. Although the 'big' money was in my job as a mechanic and later as a truck driver. I hoped I would one day fall back on this passion. On my days off I would use my converted garage as an upholstery shop and refinish pieces of furniture that I had either found or customers brought me,catering also to leather and anything to do with motorcycle accessories. I found my self laid off from my job as a transport driver in 2011. A friend hired me to work part time in his auto upholstery shop in Medicine Hat, AB. It was there I knew it was time to shit or get off the pot.. In Dec of 2012, I became Midnight Rider Custom Coverings, later in 2013 incorporating my company to include Inc. to my company name. My shop is located at 439 North Railway St. SE in Medicine Hat, Alberta. As a harley owner and lover of the 'knuckles up' lifestyle I will always find time in the week to dust off "Big Dirty" (my road king) and go for a scoot.Upholstery by day, Harley by night. Hmmm What else could I possibly have named my company?
I own a house, a Harley and a company. As well as having a beautiful wife and a close family. Respectively they keep me warm, happy, busy and loved. Does it really get any better than that?
