Woodworking started as a hobby for me during highschool and quickly blossomed into my daily living. This past October I decided to leave RPI, where I was studying mechanical engineering, to pursue this passion full time. I hope to diminish the common thought of wood and woodworking as being mundane and old news. All of my work is inspired by the natural variation and beauty of the wood that is grown in the trees that we take for granted everyday. In suburban NJ there is a tree service in nearly every town and most of the trees they take down are brought to the dump, chipped, or burned for firewood. Seeing such valuable material wasted pains me knowing that I possess the talent to transform it into artisanal furniture.
