I have worked in the moving industry for 5 years and currently serving in the United States Air National Guard. I have a strong work ethic that has helped me define who I am.
I’m an active individual ready to take part in the next adventure from skydiving, wake-boarding, hockey, soccer, hiking, camping, or what ever comes my way.
I recently graduated with my Master of Music in piano performance and I currently teach with a studio in the Boise area. Some of my other interests include: snowboarding, boating, camping, and ping pong. I was born in Ohio but have lived in Idaho since 1994. I have worked as a specialty mover for over eight years now and enjoy the physical aspect of the industry.
I was born in Minnesota, but I have been living in Idaho since 1996. I have worked in the moving industry for over 4 years but before that, I used to work seasonally for the Forest Service as Wild land firefighter in the Frank Church Wilderness. I love the adventure of life, traveling, hiking, diving, rock climbing and camping. I am currently serving in the United States Army.
Originally from Oregon, I have lived in Idaho over half my life, and couldn’t think of a better place to live. I take a huge amount of pride in the work that I do. This dates back to one of my first jobs installing carpet, to owning my own framing company, to now, being in the moving industry 5 plus years and counting. I have held various leadership and supervisor roles in which I still do today. I carry my pride and work ethic outside of work as well from art, sports, music and my best accomplishment, being a father. Along with my work ethic, I consider myself to be a laid back, fun going guy and I will carry that into your moving experience as well.
My name is Josh Folkes. I’m 27 years old and have been working for 208 moving for a little over a year. I grew up in Boise and have lived here most of my life. In my free time I enjoy playing sports and exploring the outdoors. I will be attending Boise State in the spring in pursuit of an accounting degree.
My name is Jeremiah, I have two lovely daughters and an amazing girlfriend (soon to be more than just my girlfriend). I love to hike, camp, fish, hunt, snowboard, play guitar and many other things. My passion is music and the outdoors. I hope to attend college in the near future (if life permits) and get my degree in environmental science.
As a Boise resident for most of my life, I enjoy spending my free time outside, hiking, boarding, rafting, or swinging clubs on the links. Several years ago I graduated with a BS in Criminal Justice from Boise State University. I worked with C-130s in the Idaho Air National Guard for 10 years, traveling throughout the world. 208 has been a great place to work, with great co-workers.
I was raised in Minnesota and came out west after enlisting in the Airforce. After my military career was over I spent 12 years working in National Parks and ski resorts. I came to Idaho last year after working the ski season at Sun Valley and decided to stay the summer. I love the outdoors and love all the opportunities Idaho has to offer and couldn’t be happier to call Boise my new home.
Lead Moving Assistant
My parents call me Billy but sometimes customers call me by “hey mover” or “Hey you” either way it works. The best of the best, I am young and got some time before my back starts to go out so my bosses run the crap out of me, but hey that’s fine with me because work is work and I gotta get that pay check. I’m respectful, trustworthy, and friendly, I am pretty easy to get along with. Also I am pretty tall, so when packing and grabbing something that is on shelves that some short people have problems with, it’s kind of easy for me. Very strong….. VERY!
I am a country boy at heart, born in Western Oregon from two of the most loving and dedicated parents a person could have. I grew up on a farm in a town of less than 1,000 people. I graduated high School in 2007 and moved to Idaho shortly after which lead to me instantaneously falling in love with the city of Boise. I am a father of two beautiful girls and was lucky enough to meet the love of my life, who is the mother to both my amazing daughters. In my spare time, I have hobbies including but not limited to Motocross riding, music (drums), drawing/tattooing and anything that is outdoors under God’s beautiful sky.
My name is Josh G. I’m 25 years old and have lived in Boise since 1997. I have been working for 208 moving for almost a year now and was in the Air force for four years. I’m currently attending Boise State University for my supply-chain management degree. I enjoy any outdoor activities but ultimate Frisbee the most. My friends and family are always a big part of my life and I’m happy to say I can add 208 to that list.
My name is Lewis C., and I’m 27 years old. Although I was born in Orange County, I grew up in the little town of Gooding in southern Idaho. I moved up to Boise a few years ago to finish my college education. I graduated in the spring of ’17 with an associate’s of science at BSU and plan on returning in the spring of ’18 to earn my bachelor’s in computer science. I enjoy a variety of things, such as being active, gaming (both video games and tabletop games), programming, and cooking to name a few. My overall goal is to get into a company that utilizes virtual reality after graduating with my bachelor’s.
I was born and raised in Idaho for all of my life. I started working for 208 Moving at the beginning of summer of 2017. In my spare time I enjoy all different kinds of sports such as, football, basketball, lacrosse and golf. Currently, I am going to college in pursuit of earning a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.
My name is Mitch and I am originally from a small farm town just north of Spokane. I moved to Boise several years ago to attend Boise State and just graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science. My favorite hobbies include golfing, snowboarding, camping, and I just recently started disc golfing. At 208 moving company we all enjoy working together and take great pride in our work. I believe this creates a great atmosphere for not only the employees, but the customer as well.
I’m 27, father to an amazing 3 year old boy, a husband to the love of my life, and I enjoy the 208! Travel and adventures are key to my happiness. Led Zeppelin is still the greatest band in the world. I work for the best moving company in the state; hands down. I’m happy to be a part of this team and you won’t find a friendlier group of people to move your belongings. Go Broncos!
