What is a typical day like for you? 
I wake up, have coffee and start on my projects. 
What has been most challenging in your career? 
Weather delays.
What are you most proud of in your career? 
Working on projects that help people in Alaska.
Can you tell us about your family and growing up years? 
I was born in Aleknagik and lived in Platinum until I was a teenager. We moved to Dillingham and then moved back to Platinum when I was in my twenties. I'm the oldest of four brothers and one sister. We have a big family, so I have many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. My daughter, Kayla, also works for Knik. 
What was your first job? 
Fishing was my first job. For Knik, it was truck driving. 

What would surprise most people about you?
My late father is Sam Fox, a Yupik carver and teacher. When we lived in Dillingham, he taught carving to students throughout the area. My dad also created his own works, some of which are found in the Sam Fox Museum and also in my mother's home.  

How do you spend your time outside of work?  
Hunting for subsistence. I fillet and smoke fish, make dried meat, make seal oil, and skin and butcher game. In the winter I collect wood, ice fish and go ptarmigan hunting. In the spring I go set netting and geese hunting. I am a carpenter and like to build things with wood. I am also a mechanic and work on my family's vehicles.
