After graduation, I became an officer in the U.S. Army where I achieved the rank of Captain and managed a 700-member logistical equipment and maintenance team with a $1.6 million budget. I retired to civilian life hoping to work as an industrial design engineer at a Rochester, N.Y. furniture maker.
I quickly learned what I really wanted to do was to design my own furniture. I designed a Danish Modern style bench that proved popular with more than 400 customers around the country.
In addition to making custom furniture such tables, chests, and dressers, I have also designed and installed custom closet cabinetry, library bookshelves and wet bars and have helped companies reproduce or fix elaborate molding, among other projects.
My designs and furniture typically include mortise and tenon joinery and other traditional joints, and I enjoy collaborating with consumers on custom furniture as well as working with designers on commercial hospitality and restaurant projects.
In Between Times
When not making furniture, I love spending time with my wife and children, renovating our home, tending my large vegetable garden, and harvesting timber I’ll use to rebuild my barn.
