I grew up on the outskirts of Richmond, Virginia, and was surrounded by a rich tradition of handmade furniture. I was lucky enough to learn from people who were proud of their work, and who continually were learning and seeking out new ideas. I studied under a skilled shop teacher and a local furniture maker, learning the values and techniques of woodworking that have been passed down for many years. 


After graduating from the University of Washington, I worked in various cabinet shops throughout the Northwest and traveled abroad, learning and seeking out design, both old and new. In recent years, I have moved towards more modern design and the needs of contemporary lifestyles. I am especially drawn to the simplicity and elegance of the Danish Modern furniture makers, and believe that furniture can be both useful and beautiful at the same time.
