I began my woodworking career as an apprentice to my father (a general contractor) in 1978. After twenty years in the building trade, construction became less of a challenge. It was then I started to experiment with furniture design. I really enjoyed searching, finding and working with found materials. Sometimes the design was dictated by the objects I discovered. This in turn made my work truly “one of a kind.” Once those materials were gone, the original work could never be duplicated. As I continued to grow in my design and craftsmanship, my work has evolved into what you see today.
I truly love what I do and it is my goal to share this passion with anyone who is willing to enjoy it.
