Location: Chicago

Since 2010, I've been pursuing a passion for woodworking, learning both modern techniques and traditional hand tool methods for building furniture and trim carpentry. I've been inspired to learn about Chicago's rich Craftsman, Prairie, and Arts & Crafts tradition, and by my own modest 1903 frame house's style and decor. I've applied those aesthetics and philosophies to my own interests, and found a unique outlet to express myself. I now do woodworking and furniture building for myself and for clients. I blog and post about my woodworking adventures at I'm also a professional computer consultant, and a lifelong musician.
