Hi, I’m Tyson (aka The DIY Master).
I am a licensed general contractor, artist, graphic designer, web designer, photographer and lover of doing everything myself. I’m also a night owl who likes to sleep in on the weekends.
This site is for anyone who wishes they were handy and could make their own repairs, upgrades or become a true do-it-yourselfer. You’ll find detailed tutorials (about home improvement, home repair, decor, craft and sewing) to help you over the newbie hump.
How the heck did I get to be handy?
I grew up in Northern Virginia. My parents added onto our home three times during my childhood. During renovations, my mom and dad let me swing hammers and “help” them build. They instilled in me a belief that I could do anything.
Over the next few years I’ve amassed few “smal” power tools. I enjoy the surprised look on faces when I explain that they are actually my power tools that I played with instead of toys.
