    Tom grew up in the Bay Area and attended Long Beach State with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering. Tom spent 20 years in various corporations developing processes and automation for electronics assembly and bringing new products to market. However, his passion for home building led him to co-found Menlo Builders in 2004. Tom’s expertise in process control, project management, and a knack for ‘figuring things out’ has served him well in the construction business. Tom has 2 daughters and lives in Menlo Park with his wife. In his spare time he enjoys biking, hiking, and home improvement projects.


    Sherwood grew up spending summers working for his father’s construction business. After graduating from CAL Berkeley with a Business Degree, he worked for a development company and managed several residential projects on the mid-Peninsula. He spent a few years on his own remodeling and managing single and multi-family housing projects before starting Menlo Builders in 2004. Sherwood lives in Menlo Park with his wife and two daughters. When he’s not on the job-site, he enjoys cycling (both with pedals and motors), skiing and hiking.
