Justin Fantasia is an Associate Professor of Construction Technology with the University of Alaska Southeast and the Construction Manager for the HouseBuild Project. He has been an experiential educator for 15 years, an on-again-off-again builder since high school and is working on his sixth and seventh home with Juneau students.  Hands on learning is a powerful way to teach students about the fundamentals of construction, the science and history behind our everyday world, the rewards of hard work, and the potential of students to address a community need. He is proud to be part of an exciting educational opportunity and to be addressing the need for affordable housing in our community. When he's not working, Justin can be found outside on the trails, on the slopes, on the rocks or on the ice.  

Andy Bullick is in his 10th year of teaching at JDHS. He has a degree in Industrial Education with a minor in Light Construction Methods from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. He owns Bullick Roofing LLC and works summers and weekends doing roofing and small construction projects around Juneau. In his spare time, he likes hunting, fishing, and being with his wife. He is very appreciative for his part in such a great program and wants to sincerely thank all community members who volunteer time, materials, and expertise to make this program possible.

My name is John Webber and I will be serving as the Construction Trainer Assistant for the Juneau-Douglas High School's House Build Project. Prior to my current position, I served as a Crew Leader with SAGA's Youth Corps. As a crew leader, I had the opportunity to work with Alaskan youth improving their communities as well as themselves, and I hope to continue doing so with the House Build Project. The majority of my life has been spent in New Jersey where I graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental and Business Economics. When I'm not on the worksite I enjoy spending my time being active and exploring new places. In the Juneau area since March, I have greatly enjoyed my time here so far and look forward to the months ahead.
