My interest in wood started when I worked with my father. In junior and senior high school I took courses in wood shop. When I left college I went into the woodworking industry. I have built furniture, mastered patterns and prototypes. I worked as a senior design tech for a large RV manufacturing company. The last 10 years of my professional career I was the plant manager of a door jamb plant. The development of my work was obtained over many years of observing the work of other people, working on different designs and the application of the same.
