I believe in a rubric that closely governs the work that I create. Function. Quality. Beauty. Each piece that I build adheres to these features closely.
In every step of my creative process from inception to completion I let these terms guide my hand to create a piece that will stand the test of time.
I specialize in locally harvested, solid wood which allows me to create pieces that stem from natural renewable resources. My studio in Upstate NY,
places me close to the source of many of these materials. Coupling amazing access to materials, with a melding of traditional and modern techniques
allows the creation of truly one-of-a-kind pieces.
As a furniture maker, I am entirely self taught. Starting in my early, adolescent years, building rustic tables and chairs, entirely by hand, my passion
and desire to enhance my craft has shown through. Allowing my higher education training to inform design and construction techniques I have produced
a unique style consisting of traditional and experimental elements.
