Josh Christensen, Construction Worker
Outside the Lines
No. 411

For 19 years, Josh Christensen (far left) has spent his days outdoors, transforming rocks into custom exteriors for developments around the country. The work, though physically demanding, is rarely monotonous, he says. Over the past year, Christensen has worked as a subcontractor for Outside the Lines. The Orange, California–based company is building an 18-foot waterfall for Salt Lake City with rock quarried from Utah’s Browns Canyon. Christensen followed his father into the construction business right out of high school. “I don’t know anything else,” he says. —April Joyner
