My Story

The processes of fabricating and realizing an idea, no matter its size or function, has always been exciting to me. Starting in my early childhood I found myself spending countless hours creating lamps and other functional objects in a cramped basement in West Virginia. This love of making grew physically and intellectually to include the sculptures and furniture I make today. Through this journey the constant has remained the same, the joy I get from not only solving the problem creatively, but also having the opportunity to create the problem.
