My wood-turning journey began with a second-hand lathe and the curiosity to shape wood a different way. 

Whether using figured walnut, spalted maple or an exotic African hardwood, this organic art holds as many possibilities as imagination itself. 


About the Craftsman
My interest in woodworking and furniture-making began in my dad's basement shop. Then I tried my hand at home renovation, deck-building and tree planting.

From that inauspicious beginning, I toiled as a marketing creative before turning my full attention to woodworking. Now, I work out of my dedicated workshop located in an out-building on our property in St. Catharines, Ontario.

When I'm not designing a new piece, I'm out in the community meeting amazing people at craft events like The One of A Kind Show.
