Biography

DJ Harrington - Owner, Reflections Granite and Marble, Inc.

From an early age of 2, I learned how to paint with my grandfather on some old boards at his lake house. I have always been interested in anything that has to do with building. As a teenager, I worked summers framing and building houses.

While in high school I studied carpentry for 2 years at a nearby vocational school. After high school I continued my carpentry education at Alfred Sate College where I earned my Applied Associates Degree in 1994 while playing rugby. I then transferred to Buffalo State College to play Rugby and Water Polo; and studied Vocational Technical Education.

In 1998, I moved to Charlotte, NC and worked at a Corian fabrication and installation shop. After advancing from fabricator to installer, I was promoted to manage the quality control of 3 different install crews. As the demand for granite grew in the area, we became a granite supplier as well. I took on the new position of lead granite installer. I held this position for 2 years before I was offered a job as production manager at a high end Granite Shop in the Asheville area in 2002. I was able to quickly improve the quality of work. In 2005, I became the operation/sales manager for an up and coming granite shop in the Asheville area. In Feb of 2010 I purchased an existing Granite shop and now employ three of the top fabricators/installers in Western North Carolina.

When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, fishing, and spending time with my three daughters, my wife, and our golden retriever NaNook.  Oh and I'm an avid New York Giants fan!
