Tanner was fortunate to have been born and raised in the small community of Tonto Basin, AZ, where he was introduced to heavy equipment through his father. He loved to play in the dirt and mud with Tonka trucks as a kid, and he still loves to today (with larger toys now). His first construction job was in 2012 with Aims Construction where he spent the next 9 years traveling and following the work until it brought him back to Arizona to run a loader for a pipe crew on the new South Mountain 202 freeway. In 2021, he was hired by Mike Mancini to work for Fuerte Construction to run grading and paver operations. At home he lives a bachelor life with his dog (Luna). Tanner enjoys spending his free time with family and friends and loves to travel, with the beach being his favorite destination.
