Just getting started in woodworking by way of pursuing a passion for lutherie that I hope to one day make a career. I have always been a tinkerer/maker-type, but most of my projects have been about the easiest/quickest/cheapest what to kludge something together.

Other interests include:
craft cocktails, beer and coffee
sci-fi and other geekery
my city of Somerville (the 'ville) and all our awesome artsy,geeky, crafty people
