A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.– Louis Nizer

Fred Reisen is the owner/builder at Mojo Woodworks. Originally from New Jersey he has called Colorado home since attending the University of Colorado at Boulder from 2007-2011. Through his major in Geography and a focus on sustainable human development he gravitated towards our built environment and the spaces we call home. His learning journey took him to Brazil for a Permaculture designers certificate as well as Oregon for an apprenticeship in natural building techniques. In the past ten years he has dedicated himself to the trade of carpentry with a specific focus on traditional furniture, timber framing and finish/trim carpentry. In 2018 he completed training to become an affiliate builder for EcoNest Homes specializing in Japanese timber frames and light straw clay walls. From 2017-2020 Fred worked as a lead carpenter at Simblissity Tiny Homes where he completed all phases of the builds and helped design many interior features of the homes. Now out on his own he looks forward to bringing his experience and knowledge to a project near you!
