Growing up with a father who specialized in laying tile with mortar helped Adam Esparza fall in love with the craft early on. As an adult, he quickly realized the corporate world wasn’t for him and he set out to learn all he could about tiling. In 2013, Adam launched his small contracting business, ALE Tile, in Orange County, California. Recent projects have included tilework for OQ Farm, a 500-acre farm near Woodstock, Vermont, and the kitchen of a mid-century bungalow in Laguna Beach. Adam reveres the spirit of quality custom craftsmanship, which he hopes to pass onto the next generation of builders.
