Hailing from the north side of Oklahoma City, Nolan is putting OKC on the map with his unique artistry in furniture design and woodworking. Brandy and Nolan chat about his childhood and what it was like attending various schools in the city. Nolan explains that he initially wanted to be a chef. However, the stars aligned for him to transition to find his true calling in carpentry and design. After receiving his carpentry license, Nolan began featuring his work on Facebook which helped him gain popularity and customers.
