Apprentice Carpenter/General Contractor
I graduated from Union College, studying mechanical engineering, studio arts and environmental studies. My goal is to combine all three elements into a career in industrial design. Currently I work for a high end custom design and build company in Brooklyn, NY. We create anything from one-off aluminum and steel tables to patina brass display cases. I am able to work with a wide range of materials with a full range of finishes. I also have experience with large art installations and exhibition design.
