About

I'm a furniture designer and maker based in Cobleskill, New York.  What began with furniture restorations led to being classically trained at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine before becoming a full-time woodworker.

I aim to make furniture that is quietly pleasing and structurally sound.  I make custom furniture for commercial and residential spaces along with home goods and tableware. I also regularly restore heirloom pieces.

My work has appeared in the Currier Museum of Art, the New Hampshire Institute of Art, the Frick Collection in NYC, the Messler Gallery in Maine and the Society of Arts + Crafts' CraftBoston show. I’ve been featured in publications such as Fine Woodworking magazine and the New Hampshire Furniture Masters’ 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.
