Michael Wolff grew up in rural Petaluma where he developed his passion for building things. After graduating from Petaluma High School in 1993 Michael started his first job in the construction field. As a laborer, working for a small local contractor, he learned quickly and was made an apprentice carpenter within only a few months. During his apprenticeship he had the privilege of a diverse training experience, working on everything from new housing tracks and high end custom homes to constructing in commercial office spaces.
While continuing his construction training, Michael attended night school and weekend classes until graduating Santa Rosa Junior College in 1998. After completing his AS degree, he enlisted in the Marine Corps. In the Marines he worked in communications and continued his education learning to build communication networks.
In 2001 Michael left active duty and continued his Marine service in the reserves. From 2001 till 2008 he worked primarily in residential remodeling. Michael completed a BA from Sonoma State University in 2004. In 2008 Michael returned to active duty and deployed to Iraq. After 14 months, he returned home with the dream of opening Wolff Contracting.
Wolff Contracting was opened in 2010 and has been steadily growing into a prominent part of Sonoma County’s construction community. Michael’s experience in the Marines prepared him well to lead people and he takes great pride treating his employees as part of a family.
Currently Michael is completing classes in the Construction Management program at Sonoma State but plans to enter the Masters program for Organization Development starting in the Fall.
