More About This Creator

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"It always begins with the wood, and a rough sanding to see "Whats in there". What is the wood trying to say? How can we best serve its nature. On a more fun note I am known to dance in the workshop."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"The beauty of nature, whether this tree was grown in a yard and milled, or found in an alley, or a dumpster of a demolished old house. The wood tells a story, where did it come from, how did it grow, what was it originally, how long has it has this tree been a piece of wood. what can I do to help it tell its story."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"When I started I was camera shy, I feared the sound of my voice, and profile shots of my face. Now one of my favorite things is live feeds, unscripted, random rolling footage of me working through the challenges, and joys."
