About

I'm a furniture designer and maker based in New York and Maine.  What began as shadowing family furniture restorations led to attending the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship's comprehensive program in Maine to pursue woodworking full-time.

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

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

My work has appeared in the Messler Gallery, the Society of Arts + Crafts' CraftBoston event and in Fine Woodworking magazine.
