About

I'm a furniture designer and maker based in Cobleskill, New York.  What began with furniture restorations led to attending the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship's comprehensive program in Maine to then becoming a full-time woodworker.

I aim to make furniture that is quietly pleasing and structurally sound.  I also enjoy restoring existing pieces and giving them a second wind.

My work has appeared in the Currier Museum of Art, the New Hampshire Institute of Art, the Messler Gallery in Maine and the Society of Arts + Crafts' CraftBoston show. Publications I’ve been featured in include Fine Woodworking magazine and the New Hampshire Furniture Masters’ 2018 annual catalog.

In 2017 I received the Alden Artisan Advancement Award from the New Hampshire Furniture Masters.  An article about this was featured on Fine Woodworking.
