Thank you for visiting my website. Please take a moment to explore my gallery. All of my creations have been crafted by myself from start to finish in my studio in St. Johns, Florida. Many of the items in the gallery have been sold or gifted. I am always learning new skills, trying new things and creating new items.
I was born in New York. I am a veteran US Navy Photographer. I have a undergraduate degree in Computer Science. I am now retired and living in St. Johns, Florida.
I have often been asked how I became interested in woodturning and when I started turning. I have always had a desire to work with wood and create things. I never really found the chance until after I retired in 2017.
When I started to focus more on my bobbin lacemaking hobby. Tiny spindles, called bobbins are used to make lace. I thought I could start turning my bobbins and tools, so I bought my first lathe.
As my skills grew, I started turning many other creations. My garage soon morphed into a studio and I acquired more tools. I am now embellishing with paint and tools such as micro carvers and wood burners.
I am a member of the Northeast Florida Woodturners Association and the American Association of Woodturners.
