An Interview with Byron Thomson

Question #1: How long have you been in the plumbing industry?

I’ve been plumbing in Sarasota for over 16 years now; I had the opportunity to start plumbing part-time when I was 16 years old. I took plumbing classes at night and worked for a plumbing company during the day for 4 years, then I received my Master’s plumbing license at 21 years old. Sarasota is my hometown; my whole plumbing career has been here.

Question #2: What do you like most about your job?

I really like meeting new people and helping solve problems! It’s a blessing to be able to step in and take some of the stress out of people’s lives. Any time I can do that, I feel like I’ve had a good day at work! Ever since I was little, I’ve loved building things and solving puzzles. I’ve always enjoyed working with my hands, so this is the perfect job for me!

Question #3: What is your Meyers-Briggs personality type?

Last time I checked I was an INFJ. (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging) This matches me pretty well in my opinion! To learn more about the INFJ personality, click here.

Question #4: What is one fun fact about you?

A fun fact about me? Well, I’m one of eight siblings—second born—and all of us were homeschooled through high school. I’ve got a really great family! I’m also lucky to have recently hired my brother, Evan, to work alongside me here at Next Level Plumbing. He’s also been plumbing in Sarasota for a number of years now.
(Curious about Evan? Keep a lookout here on the blog for his interview in the future!)

Question #5: If money were no object, what would you do more often?

I’d travel! Traveling the world has always been a dream of mine, made even more of a dream when I married my nature and adventure-loving wife! The first place we’d go is in Ireland. I’d love to see New Zealand as well—it’s a beautiful place… perfect for the adventurous soul with a camera!

Question #6: What is your favorite pastime?

I love being able to come home every day to my wife, Mollie. My favorite moments are spent with her. We enjoy going on adventures together, or being low-key and watching our favorite shows or nature documentaries on the couch while we eat dinner.

Question #7: Do you have a favorite time of day?

Absolutely! I love mornings when everything is quiet and peaceful. I’m able to wake up refreshed and usually feel the most productive in the early morning time.
