Growing Up in Portland, Maine, Kirk graduated from Cheverus High School and the University of Maine with a BS in Business. After graduating, Kirk worked for a commercial general contractor in Massachusetts and Maine before starting MW Hoss.
Cory began to develop his carpentry skills at a young age. After graduating from University Maine with a BS in Engineering, Cory spent 10+ years building high-end homes and small to mid-size commercial projects with a local construction management firm.
While most kids would go to the beach or sports camp during the school summers, you could find Matt with his tool belt on building houses with his Dad. After graduating from University of Maine with a BS in Engineering and Construction Management, he spent 10 years working in the commercial construction industry before starting MW Hoss.
My name is Chad. I graduated from the University of Maine with a BS in Construction Management/AS in Civil Engineering Technology. I have been working in the commercial construction industry for almost 23 years. During these 23 years I have worked mostly in project management but have also worked in estimating, purchasing/procurement, and preconstruction. I worked in Washington D.C./Massachusetts right after college before re-finding my Maine roots and moving back in 2004. I worked with both Matt and Kirk previously at other local construction firms before deciding to join the MW Hoss Team at the end of 2020. I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy working/playing outdoors when time allows.
My name is Darlene and I’m the Business/Operations Manager at MW Hoss Construction. I had previously worked with Kirk, Matt, Cory, Chad and Clint, so I was excited for the opportunity to work with them all again. During and after college, I worked for Architects and Engineers, and it wasn’t until I was placed on a project site that I realized how much more I’d enjoy that side of design and construction. With over 27 years of experience, I’m hoping to alleviate Kirk and the other project managers of some of their responsibilities and to streamline some of systems that were previously in place. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, hiking, and exploring Maine and New Hampshire on the back of a motorcycle.
My name is Colin and I was born and raised in Detroit Michigan. I grew up coming to Maine every summer and knew from a young age that it would one day be my home. I’ve now lived in Maine for 15 years and have worked in the trades since my arrival. M.W. Hoss is a solid company to find yourself in if you value good people and creating an honest product. My passions out side of work are in creating music and acting in a story telling improv group called “Portland Playback.”
My name is Jake and I joined M.W. Hoss Construction one year ago with 4 years of construction experience. Simply put, I really like what I do.
Hey my name is Dylan, I joined M.W. Hoss Construction with 12 years of construction and landscape installation experience. My admiration for the creativity and craftsmanship in residential and landscape construction attracted me to this profession as a teenager. When I’m not working, I enjoys boating around Casco Bay, surfing along the coast of Maine and playing the guitar. I live in Westbrook with my fiancé Allison and two cats, Clark and Bean.
Hey I’m Luke but everyone around here calls me Bennett. I grew up in Gorham Maine and I’ve been in the trades for 6 years. I tested out a few trades until I took a job offer to work for a builder and ever since I helped frame a home for that builder I’ve been hooked. Nothing beats working with wood! When I’m not doing carpentry I’m usually out on a motocross track somewhere in Maine.
Hey my name is Jeff, I grew up in Freeport Maine, and I’ve lived in Colorado and California but nothin’ beats Maine! I enjoy carpentry because I love working with my hands, being part of a team, and creating beautiful and efficient living and working spaces for the good people of Maine. I also enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, surfing, soccer, gardening, and spending time with my family and friends eatin’ fresh clams and lobstah!
Hi there, I’m Thomas! After graduating from UMaine, I started working with a local builder in Portland and fell in love with the trade. Carpentry requires creativity when problem solving and I enjoy the challenges it brings day to day. When not swinging a hammer, I’m spending time with friends and family or aground somehwhere in Casco Bay, waiting for the tide to come in.
My name is Ryan and I live in my home town of Standish, I’ve done landscape and hardscape installations since 2010, I recently decided to make the switch and join the MWHoss team! I enjoy taking on new challenges and I take pride in a job well done. The creative work and the great team at MWHoss make it easy to come to work every day.
Hi, my name is Anthony but a lot of people call me Tony. I was born and raised in Portland, Maine, graduated from Portland High School and the University of Maine with a BS in Construction Management & Business. I’ve worked in the construction industry for 10 years in both Maine and Massachusetts. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family, golfing, distance running and being at the lake.
Hey, my name is Lincoln and I’ve lived in Portland basically my whole life. Ever since a young age I knew I wanted to work in the trades. I fell in love with carpentry my sophomore year of high school. I’ve always liked the fine details of it. I joined the M.W.Hoss team after completing the two year carpentry program at PATHS. Outside of work I enjoy playing pick-up lacrosse.
I’ve lived and worked in Maine since 1997. After a decade of working in the hospitality industry I needed a change. I always enjoyed building so I decided to learn carpentry. I worked for a well established construction management firm out of Freeport, ME for 16 years. During that time I was fortunate to have worked with some of the most talented craftspeople in the state. I honed my carpentry skills while working on high end residential, commercial, and numerous ultra-energy efficient projects. After 16 years I wanted a change of scenery and have now joined MWHoss Construction. I’ve been with the company for under a year now. I feel I can offer my experience and skillset to help the company grow and continue to be successful. In my free time, my family and I enjoy snowboarding, traveling, camping, hiking, and eating at all the great restaurants Maine has to offer.
From a young age, I have always had opportunities to work with my hands, due in part to my family’s rental buildings and boat building business. I have always had the values of self reliance instilled in me. I have worked for seven years in commercial maintenance for a large Maine based company. I’m excited to bring my skill set to MW Hoss as well as to learn new skills. When I’m not at work, you will most likely find me spending time with my wife and son, tinkering on all sorts of varied projects, or working in our garden.
I’ve been a carpenter for four years now. M.W. Hoss has only grown my skills and has brought me to some of the best job sites in Maine.
My name is John Kane. After working in construction around Boston for about 9 years, I moved to Maine in 2021 to be closer to the mountains. I am an avid skier in the winter and a mediocre mountain biker in the summer. I enjoy carpentry because I find building things to be very rewarding. I started building guitars as a hobby during quarantine and that has quickly turned into one of my greatest passions.
Hey! I’m Parker. I worked as a welder for five years before making the jump to carpentry. I’ve been married to my beautiful wife for 4 years. I love the ocean and mountain biking.
