Born and raised in the NY, NJ metropolitan area. Moved to Hawaii in 1992...never had any talent or artistic ability. Found Koa and it took me over. Been playing with it ever since, self taught. Created woodcraft for 15 years now and people honor me by purchasing for themselves or as gifts with their hard earned money. It's very flattering. My hands have been badly ruined by the vibration of the grinders and sanders 8 hours a day, but my mind keeps thinking up ideas and concepts so I can't stop. I need to learn computer controlled CNC so I can work into my old age.

Used to go up to Saratoga to see concerts when I was in my 20s….but I don’t remember them much.
