I’ve lived almost all my life in the East Bay, attended the Wood Technology trade school program at Laney, and have spent decades since building furniture. My desire to mix wood and metal in my designs brought me to The Crucible, where I now enjoy being a teacher of wood, and a student of metal. I love sharing what turns me on about these dynamic materials, and helping people chase their creative goals.
