I began a fine woodworking apprenticeship under a local master furniture maker in Vermont while still in high school. Upon completing the required 8000 hour apprenticeship program, I became the first to achieve Vermont State certification for Furniture Making.
My 5 year journeymanship followed, beginning in Vermont and extending to Naples, FL.
Finally, in 2004, my dream of being a Master came true when I opened my first shop in Naples, FL. In 2010, I expanded that dream by relocating back to the forests, this time, in the Western North Carolina town of Black Mountain.
