I am a Brooklyn based designer with a love of craft, sustainability, and the city around me. Much of my work consists of furniture and tabletop items influenced by traditional production processes. I am constantly inspired by the world around me and am always looking to learn a new skill. With every new technique I pick up, I work my hardest to apply it to an object that is not only functional, but fun, quirky, and beautiful.
