As a young boy growing up in Western NY some of my fondest memories was touring the Darwin Martin House and going to the Roycroft. I have a great appreciation for the craftsmanship of Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs.
My woodworking began 17 years ago when my wife and I moved into our first home. We wanted a baker’s rack for our kitchen. We had no luck finding one. This led to my first project that I designed and built. It ignited a passion that has been strong ever since. I had no formal training just self taught using mission style processes. The quality of its work I emulate into what I design and build.
I love the creativity of designing original pieces. I have made many pieces of furniture, keepsake boxes, lights and doors. One of my favorite builds was a crib I built for my children. I designed the crib so it could be converted into a bed later on.
I have used reclaimed wood in many of my projects. My belief is it tells a story itself. I support other artists by incorporating their work into mine.
