Sculpting, wood turning, welding, joining, polishing, etc. The work I do is every bit about the creation of a piece or project, as the final outcome. Embracing the challenges of design, building and fabrication is a a central part of how I live my life. I am also an ardent enthusiast of bicycling, skiiing, and boating. I fully enjoy living alongside the magnificient Hudson River.
This web site encompasses the breadth of my work from personal work and sculpture to the design, building, and fabrication I do for clients. The photos represent just a portion of my work.
