When he’s not working on a project at his workshop, you can find him checking out new tools online or at the nearest hardware, or seated at his home office creating content for this website.

OUR CORE AND AIM

Sawinery is a provider of a wide scope of woodworking knowledge. We continue to produce quality content that will help all woodworking enthusiasts worldwide understand and love the wood industry.

We have DIY projects to encourage both beginners and experts to try creating something new, perhaps a project they have not done before. We also keep stories of remarkable woodworkers to inspire those who feel like they are limited and could not start woodworking on their own.

Nolan Terrell

VP for Audience Growth

Nolan specializes in the art of knowing what the audience wants and making sure they find it. He finds content strategy opportunities, implements SEO optimization techniques, and develops audience growth game plans for Sawinery. Nolan got his start as the managing editor of his college paper, and after he graduated with a marketing degree, he continued to upskill and gain experience in relevant fields. Nolan became a copywriter, social media assistant, marketing coordinator, brand strategist, and digital marketing manager for different businesses and corporate clients.

In his free time, Nolan likes to practice his coffee-making skills.

Senior Content Manager

Ingrid oversees the content creation, distribution, and publication on Sawinery.
We deal with a lot of content on the site, and Ingrid works with our industry experts and editors to make sure that everything is on point and on brand. With a coffee in hand, she keeps the entire department running like a well-oiled machine.

Aside from her passion for writing, Ingrid also loves gardening. Growing up on a farm, she has learned to cultivate various plants together with her mom. She continues to grow some herbs and vegetables in her backyard, and lucky for us, Ingrid often shares her harvest with the team.

Emmett Quinn

Information Security Analyst

Emmett is in charge of implementing security systems for Sawinery and monitoring networks for any security issues. His job entails protecting the company from cyber-attacks and preventing security breaches. We’re embarrassed to admit it, but he’s also the person we call when we can’t seem to get the printer working.

But while Emmett is indeed the techie in the team, he’s also a woodworking enthusiast who enjoys creating his own projects. We often find him in the workshop with Garrett, working away on a wall shelf or some other thingamabob. His most prized creation so far is a wooden dog bed he made for his golden retriever, Max.

Lawn Care Specialist

Bernard has worked with both private and corporate clients throughout his career as a lawn care specialist, helping customers keep their lawns pristine and well-maintained. He has been in the lawn care industry for more than a decade, with his work involving planting grass, mowing lawns, trimming hedges, and keeping these green spaces looking lovely and vibrant. Bernard also has a degree in landscaping, which set a strong foundation for him in terms of irrigation systems, landscape construction, and pest control.

Currently, Bernard continues to collaborate with turf specialists and master gardeners to achieve his clients’ goals. He’s a significant author at Sawinery, testing and reviewing lawn mowers for the site.

Certified Arborist

When it comes to all things trees, Simone is the one to call. She’s a certified arborist with nearly a decade’s worth of experience in pruning, tree felling, tree removal, tree planting, and tree care. As a professional, Simone is highly trained in arboriculture techniques and the proper maintenance of trees. Her equipment arsenal is pretty intimidating, as she always works with heavy-duty tools like a chainsaw, pole saw, and woodchipper. Of course, since her profession has its dangers, she never goes on the job without her safety gear.

When she’s not cutting branches or chainsawing big logs, Simone spends her time with her family and their three cats.
