Meet the Artisan

Aka: Coz, Cozmo, or Christofloor

A true craftsman through and through. I am an artist at heart who has been dabbling with creating since a young age. Starting with pottery, painting, woodworking and growing more advanced in the arts with glass blowing and furniture building as a young adult. I was drawn to flooring because it allowed me to utilize my gift of artistic vision as well as use my hands-on ability to craft, while making an honest living. Flooring is a very rewarding trade in many ways and I live, eat and breath my business. I am NWFA Educated, 18 years experienced in practical application, and motivated to grow. My goal driven personality has played a lead role in creating AStepAheadFlooring.
