The beginning of my story over 3 decades ago is quite humble. Being inspired watching the PBS show The New Yankee Workshop, I slowly acquired a set of basic tools and began by building small woodworking projects for my growing family. I worked in a cramped garage attached to our abode, placing many limitations as to when and how I could work.
Fast forward to today. My passion for woodworking has expanded exponentially. What was initially just a hobby has evolved into a business. I am 100% self-taught and much of what I have learned has been through trial-and-error. My woodworking shop now is state-of-the-art and no longer the size of a closet. My focus is creating high-end furniture of my own design. I never mass-produce anything and all my work is one-off, completely hand-made and intended to be appreciated by a select few.
Over the years, I have been invited to and/or have exhibited my work at shows in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Washington DC, Chantilly VA, Northampton MA, Southampton NY and various locations in Upstate New York. My work has been shipped to clients across the United States, not to mention the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Australia.
To this day, I continue to create new designs, try different techniques and sample new wood species in order to update, refresh and expand my portfolio. The rewards are many but I must say that the greatest reward of all is to have appreciative clients praise my work and decide to make it part of their collection.
