About Me

A moment of affirmation with Sam Maloof at his shop the week before his 93rd birthday.

For almost two decades I have been designing, creating and restoring furniture and architecture. Numerous hours have been spent scrutinizing and decoding information from books, fellow woodworkers and the study of antique furniture. I am grateful to have obtained many supporters and mentors along the way.

In my early twenties I picked up a book on a coffee table entitled “Sam Maloof Woodworker” and from that moment on I was hooked. I was able to meet Sam Maloof and to speak with James Krenov, two of the most influential woodworkers of the last century, before their deaths. I will always appreciate the insight and knowledge from both, and they also serve to remind me that it is possible to thrive as a craftsman if one has passion and stays true to his convictions.

I was invited to become a workshop assistant for the summer of 2010 at The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine and was honored by a Fellowship the following year. The experience was both inspiring and educational and I was fortunate to work with and develop life-long relationships with craftsman from all over the world.

I have always felt the need to share my enthusiasm and encourage work that speaks to the human soul.
