Member Bio
Mo Karnage, they/them, is a local rabble rouser and entrepreneur. Since 2014 Mo has owned and run Karnage Construction, a Class A Licensed contractor specializing in historic preservation work, but also providing home renovations, butch for hire small jobs, and new construction projects. Mo's great grandpa started Caravati's architectural salvage, and Mo's dad and grandpa were in the millwork and cabinetry business. Sawdust runs in thei blood, as do old Richmond houses. Mo is a parent to a rambunctious 7 year old, and has 3 dogs and 2 cats. Mo splits their time between Cuckoo in Louisa County and Highland Park. Mo is a vegan and into punk, zines, diy, and generally always has 14,000 projects going on. Mo loves thrift stores, free stuff, running, and hoarding building materials (its genetic). When Mo isn't building or painting, Mo is probably reading a trashy romance or murder book, but can be coaxed to get their nose out of the book to hangout at a local dive bar, coffee shop, or swimming hole.
