My woodworking journey began in middle school when I spent a semester building a small wall-hanging clock. In high school, I built a grandfather clock.
That year, our industrial materials teacher took us on a field trip to a high-end custom furniture shop. They specialized in period reproductions. I loved what I saw, and inquired about working there.
Following high school graduation in 1998, I began my apprenticeship at that very shop. Over the next several years I worked in various shops, learning as many techniques as possible.
In the fall of 2004, I enrolled in the cabinet and furniture making program at North Bennet Street School. Located in Boston’s historic North End. There I refined my skills. Upon graduation, I continued to build commissioned pieces. Eventually, I was again employed by the very first shop I apprenticed at. After several more years there, and now with almost a quarter-century of experience I have started my own shop. I look forward to working with you!
