Garrett County - In Mountain Maryland

Gregan Thomas Crawford

Garrett County has been a part of my life since the age of 11 when my family purchased a 150 acre farm in the Pleasant Valley area south of Oakland in 1974.  Prior to graduating from The Maryland Institute, College of Art 1986 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, I attended Hampden-Sydney College which is a small liberal arts college that was founded in 1776 and is located in central Virginia.

Shortly after graduation I got married to my wife of 24 years, Donna, and I began working in the advertising industry and later as an apprentice for a cabinetmaker in the Baltimore area.   My wife and I relocated to Garrett County in 1989 where early on I worked as a carpenter and a real estate agent.  For the past twenty years I have been a self-employed as a custom cabinetmaker building made-to-order furniture, case goods, and built-ins to the local residential and commercial markets.
