My reverence for all things wood was nurtured at an early age by my grandfather, a hobbyist woodworker and carpenter. Throughout high school, college and beyond, I explored wood as a building material through woodworking, studying Wood Products at The Pennsylvania State University, timber framing, carpentry and designing timber frames.
In 2005, my his future wife, Jen, and I moved to New England, an area with a rich tradition as one of the centers of studio furniture making. I had the good fortune to work with one celebrated maker, which was a catalyst for the type of finely detailed work I currently produce.
I currently live and work on a small homestead outside of Pittsburgh, PA with my wife Jen and our Newfoundland, Ted.
