John grew up chasing his dreams. In his youth John played football in which he was granted a scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh and was a 3 year starter and captain. After graduating with a bachelors degree in marketing, John pursued a life in the NFL.
John picked up the hobby of woodworking during the offseason. After his career in football ended he decided to pursue furniture making as more of a business than a hobby. Learning mostly from Youtube and magazines, Johns hobby quickly became a way to make money. Since his jump from the NFL, John has turned his one time hobby into a profitable business.

Brad began his woodworking career in 2002 with a class at his local Woodcraft. After learning some basics he dove right into his new hobby, taking night time workshops at a local high school.
Around the same time he purchased a 1905 Fixer upper in Cincinnati OH. After jumping into the life of remodeling and maintaining a home, Brad began building a skill set that was much more than woodworking. In 2013 Brad moved back home to Nashville, TN and discovered Instagram.
Going all in, he began to develop a passion for the impressive woodworking community on IG, and started building his own following. In 2015 Fixthisbuildthat.com was launched and Brad hasn’t looked back since. Only working part time, brad has made significant strides in building an online business in a short period of time.
