I have enjoyed wood­work­ing all my life. Fifteen years ago I set aside the corpo­rate world to build func­tional art furni­ture full time. My studio is located in the forest on the banks of the scenic Rum River in Minnesota.

I believe that inspi­ra­tion can come from anywhere. I aspire, as William Blake suggested, to see the world in a grain of sand”. Careful atten­tion to the details in my work leads to smile produc­ing surprises for all those who look closely.

Today, my works are known for their fluid, nature inspired designs, the use of exotic woods, stained glass, pati­nated copper, and inlays of brass, silver,abalone, and mother of pearl. My work is currently on display in galleries in Minneapo­lis, Minnesota and San Fran­cisco, California.

Recently I assisted in the creation of Europa II- the 2009 Art Case piano for Stein­way and Sons.

In addi­tion to wood­work­ing, I enjoy music and an occa­sional” glass of wine. When the two are combined, I will argue endlessly with myself, debat­ing the best music ever written. Today, it’s a tie between Chopin’s Fantaisie Impromptu” and Neil Young’s Like a Hurricane”.
