A Colorado native, I briefly left the Rockies to get a biology degree from Lewis and Clark College.  After college I spent 15 years in various jobs in the ski industry living in Crested Butte, CO.

I switched gears in 2012 and started woodworking, learning how to design and build furniture at the Center for Furniture Craftmanship in midcoast Maine.  I ended up making the move to Camden (where the mountains meet the sea!) and now make one-of-a-kind spoons, kitchen tools and modern house wares in my studio.
