When asked how he has enjoyed his career Kudela responded, “It’s been a great life, it’s been really fulfilling for me. It’s fun to drive around and see the things that you’ve built over the years.”
Kudela explained to Ferenc that being a bricklayer takes a lot of skill. Kudela explains how it takes a lot of hand-eye coordination, you have to know what is plumb and what is level, and you also have be willing to work with your hands.
