Mike W.

I am a lifelong Ohio Valley native who spent six years in the U.S. Navy as a submariner. Those years out of the area gave me a deep appreciation for the friendly, generous, and kind people who call The Ohio Valley Home.

I have a great family of which I am proud and share with my wife/best friend. Between us, we have 4 sons, 2 daughters, 1 granddaughter, 4 dogs, 5 cats, 2 parrots, and 4 chickens. With all of this, our lives can be complicated but satisfying.

I have not been with LTWK for long. I took this job because it sounded interesting, and I have discovered that it is a great place to work and my co-workers are fantastic. I can wholeheartedly say that I like my job and coming to work every day is something that I look forward to. I am learning all of the time, and I am sure that I will be an expert on knives and knife making before too long.
