When I went looking for a school in 1988 where I could learn to build furniture I had no desire to build anything but traditional reproductions. Now my days are consumed with experimenting with surface texturing using chisels, rasps, and grinders and with exploring the the interaction of textured organic forms and clean straight lines. My enjoyment of my work is only surpassed by the enjoyment of my wife and three children and the time I spend working with the youth group at our church in Owego, New York where I live and work.
