Location: Indianapolis, IN

Software engineer, married to my college sweetheart from Indiana University. We live in Indianapolis with our 6 year old dog black lab/chow chow, Ninja. I'm originally from Maryland but have been living in Indiana since 2000.

I've had some experience with woodworking in high school but haven't done much since. I got back into it a few years ago when I told my wife I could make us some new nightstands and bedroom furniture. I still have a lot to learn but I'm enjoying every bit of it. I try to use traditional joinery and a mix of power and hand tools. I prefer the quiet though of hand planing wood as I find hand tool work to be extremely rewarding and relaxing.

I have turned my two car garage into a mobile shop so I can move everything to the sides to make room for the cars, however my wife has been kind enough to not mind parking outside all the time :) Unfortunately, it must also share space with other house storage and lawn equipment.
