Raleigh man turns dream into reality after Hurricane Matthew (WTVD)

When Hurricane Matthew flooded Kyle Rogers' home, he decided to quit his job and pursue a new passion - creating art.

"When the hurricane hit, that's when I was like, 'Alright, I'll try cutting out a specific design,'" said the 28-year-old entrepreneur.

With a jigsaw in hand, Rogers cut out the Raleigh skyline from some wood.

"I did it, I quit my job and pursued this new passion." he said.

It's a woodworking business, specializing - at least for now - in skyline designs.

Rogers said he cranks out at least 30 of his designs per month.

"I don't know if I'll make a bunch of millions of dollars one day but regardless, I love it," he said.

His designs have been sold across the country, booking him solid through February.

Even county star and Garner resident Scotty McCreery is among Roger's customers.

Had it not been for that storm that roared across North Carolina, the Triangle may never have known Roger's business, Wordsky Designs.

Roger's advice to other wanna be entrepreneurs? "If you're on the fence, do it."
