Biography

I have been a woodworking craftsman for over thirty-five years. My passion for woodworking started with my grandfather in his basement shop, learning basic hand tool and machine techniques. I have developed and continue to improve my skills by attending woodworking events, reading books and magazines, and then applying what I learn in my studio. I have utilized my operations background to establish a world class woodworking studio with state of the art equipment and efficient fabrication techniques. Since my studio is based at my home, I offer exceptional value and excellent customer service.

I design and build award winning quality furniture for individual clients and designers. Creating beautiful furniture with modern and traditional joinery, and superior craftsmanship is my passion. The clean design of my furniture enhances the natural color, grain and beauty of the wood. Hand-selected hardwoods from around the world add beauty, strength and depth to my work.
