I've enjoyed crafting things out of wood ever since I was a kid. I started out in Texas making animals from wood scraps my father gave me. As I grew so did my interest in woodworking. Developing skills in wood shop through school, home construction during summer jobs, and full-time work in cabinetry. When I moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1983, I brought my tools, experience, and passion with me. One of my greatest joys is re-purposing items and re-claiming lumber to use in my pieces. It's important to me to use our planets resources wisely. I am proud to give new life to these found items and incorporate them into a new and functional creation!
