I have been drawn to the grain in wood for as long as I remember. The way it smells, the way it looks, the way it feels. Born in Victoria, I have spent most of my life here. After a decade of working in hot kitchens I made the conscious decision to follow my dreams and and turn my greatest passion into a career. A revelation came late into the night of a long day of frantic glue ups and panic sanding with one day before a deadline when my shoulders burned and I was covered in dust I smiled to myself and thought
“I absolutely love what I am doing right now and wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
I look for inspiration in the work of legends like Krenov, Nakashima, Greene & Greene and Maloof.
