I'm a retired NYC Firefighter and former NYC Police Officer. After retiring, I traveled to several places including New Zealand and Thailand. Both of these countries have a rich history of woodcarving. I was intrigued behind the artistic and technical part of these master woodcarvers. After, completing my travels I realized what I wanted to do.

I started woodcarving in June 2011. I attended two, one week courses in Glouster, Mass. and learned some basics behind this art. I was hooked!

I work only with traditional woodcarving tools. No power tools, except for roughing out projects.. I'm always looking to learn more. This past summer, I attended three weeks of carving school in Austria. I plan on going back to Austria in 2013 to learn more. If anybody has some suggestions, I am always ears. Thank You for looking!
