I am a tradesman and artist that specializes in custom woodworking. My fellowship began in 2005 when I worked at M.J. Martin Woodworking and The Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking simultaneously. This initial skill-focused experience allowed me to learn modern production methods in an architectural mill shop and cabinet shop as well as specialized techniques used in period and bespoke furniture styles at the school. This foundation made me versatile in the woodworking trade and an asset to individual shops throughout New England. I later furthered my training at North Bennet Street School in Boston as well as several independent shops in the Boston area.
In 2010 I moved to New Hampshire to open my own sole proprietorship and have been creating custom woodwork ever since. From 2010-2018, I worked at Lindsay Workshop’s in Deerfield NH, an old pneumatic factory turned into a 12,000-sq. ft. collective studio. From 2018-2022, I worked in a 3400 sq. ft. facility in Hooksett NH. Currently I work at F.P. Victoria and Son’s 12,000 sq. ft. facility in Pittsfield NH. The nature of the shop showcases a full working environment able to create a broad range of custom woodwork to fit patrons, designers, and contractor’s needs. Outside of the shop, I have a heavy presence in the woodworking community and am a juried member of the NH Furniture Masters Association and the League of NH Craftsmen.
I design woodwork in a variety of styles to fit the client’s aesthetic vision and architectural surroundings. Along with being versatile in a variety of styles, I also create my own signature style of woodwork that breathes a sense of motion and my love for flowing water and vegetation in nature.
Upon starting my career in woodworking in 2005 and to the present I have had focused experience in the trade of furniture making. My skills are technical in nature which has made me versatile and adaptive to all styles of furniture and its ornamentation. These technical skills offer variety and unique problem solving to many complex forms such as 18th/19th Century forms, Art Nouveau, or integrating mixed media such metal and stone. This variety provides a versatility for all patrons, designers, and contractors needs.
Along with being versatile in a variety of styles, I also create my own signature style of furniture that breathes a sense of motion and my love for flowing water and vegetation in nature. My trade-based fellowship throughout my career opened doors to my artistic vision with the ability to join wood and sculpted through its joinery.
