Born and raised in Washington State, I have always had an appreciation for the beautiful qualities of fine wood. Furniture design is an art form. Handcrafted furniture, whether Arts & Craft, Shaker, or Mission style should be aesthetically pleasing, functional, comfortable, and durable.

I honed my skills for two years taking courses taught by master furniture maker Ross Day. Since then, Iíve dedicated myself to expressing my own style through the creation of one of- a-kind pieces of furniture.

Working out of my shop near Seattle, I craft wood furniture with hand joinery. I prefer to combine cherry, birds-eye maple, and curly maple with accents of ebony and walnut, taking care that every bed, dining table, dresser, chair, and desk reveals the timeless beauty inherent in the wood grain.

I take pride in my transitional designs which have a reverence for traditional joinery, an eye for innovation, and a very slight touch of contemporary style.

I make fine furniture, not for the mass market, but for discerning people who know the difference between handmade and production furniture. Each limited production and custom piece is signed and dated. I hope you will enjoy my furniture like a favorite painting that will provide pleasure for generations.
