I have always had a desire to build something with my hands and to pursue something that goes deep in knowledge and understanding. When I was young you could find me duct taping cardboard together on the floor, building whatever I could from imagination. Only then did I dream about having the shop like I do now. I have turned to woodworking as a way to fully engage my mind and acquire knowledge passed down from woodworker to woodworker. I have many mentors and teachers that have shaped me to be the best furniture maker I can be. However, you might find me in my shop pressing and making custom snowboards, skateboards, restoring old machinery, or doing something crazy that I’ve never done before. No matter the project there is always something new to learn with endless possibilities. I have always had the urge to “get dirty” with my hands and build something. Woodworking has became my life and passion and couldn’t imagine what I would be doing without it.
A good quote that explains what it is like as a craftsmen:
" When you buy something from an artist you're buying more than an object you are buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You're buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You're not buying just one thing you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul... a small piece of someone else's life.
