My Story

Graduating the Fine Woodworking program at Selkirk in 2012, is where my professional career began, which is why it is so fulfilling to now fill-in as an instructor for the program.  My career has led to many opportunities to learn and gain experience through various building techniques such as: timberframe, high-end millwork, custom woodwork, kitchen and cabinet installations, finish carpentry, as well as building complete homes from start to finish.  I am also spearheading an upcoming local community cooperative that will help to support local artists and woodworkers alike. 


I am inspired by the fact that we all ended up in this lovely little town and that we can work together to make it even better.  I am determined to do my best work for you.
