I am a creative individual and use my free time to learn and experiment with, furniture design and fabrication, water color, photography, drawing, oil painting, surf board shaping and glassing, ceramics, culinary endeavors and playing the bass, ukulele and drums.
One of my biggest passions is to design and fabricate simple, sleek yet elegant furniture creations based upon mid-century modern influences. I seek simple yet innovative design and strive to create elegance based upon styles characterized by clean simplicity and integration with nature.
I enjoy the creative process and new glazing techniques
SURFBOARD DESIGN AND FABRICATION
I believe in my skills and talents for surfboard designs, especially those related to long board styles that exceed 9 feet. I designed and built my own work studio that supports this messy business of shaping, fiberglass and final production efforts. I have become very proficient in surf board design and work closely with each client to understand their specific needs to combining features that match their surfing style. I am capable of performing all steps from initial foam blank shaping to the final hot coat finish. To date I have successfully designed, glassed and fabricated over fourteen boards.
