designer and fabricator of furniture and housewares.
As a fabricator and designer, I understand what it takes to bring a project from initial concept to final installation. My experience as a designer lends me the ability to look at the larger picture of a project in order to effectively predict conflicts and address them before they become serious problems. I am able to apply aesthetic considerations to functional solutions to make beautiful things work. By drawing upon on-the-job and acedemic education, the background I have obtained allows me to communicate effectively with clients, contractors, and coworkers from design all the way to installation. I love a building challenge and thrive on high fit and finish jobs. I am committed to my craft and have dedicated myself to the mastering the skills of yesterday and tomorrow. I am just as at home at a CAD station designing for the latest 3-d printer or laser cutter as I am laying out with a string and scribe and cutting to my line with a hand saw. By focusing on being a maker and not solely a machinist, welder, carpenter, or drafter I am able to enrich my entire design and building process and bring the best techniques to my practice.
since 2005 as a designer i have used my knowledge of building techniques and technologies in conjunction with my artistic and spacial sensibilities and historical perspective to give clients the very best concepts possible.
