I grew up in the Green Mountains of Vermont. I have always appreciated quality craftsmanship and knew I wanted to be a craftsman one day. I got my start working in residential construction but soon became interested in cabinetry and the finer aspects of woodworking. This interest led me to the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport Maine which started me on the path I am on today. I find pleasure in taking a rough piece of wood and turning it into a piece of functional art which will be used for many years to come.
