I Started in residential remodeling and quickly found a love for design. Met a lot of really cool people and worked on very fulfilling projects, but realized my passion was in building furniture.

Eventually found a genius to follow and worked under James Dawson learning concrete, steel, and wood work for 4 years producing high-end, luxury products. I live for all things tastefully modern, my cats and my sweet Julie. I prefer to be continually challenged, and I seriously love what I do.
