I've had tools in my hands since I was a young boy. Today I'm grateful for the mechanical aptitude that was developed as I was growing up. Today I have a passion for functional design and sustainability. In my SE Portland shop I work to create a foundation for designs that will outlive us. Working in alternative and repurposed materials, bamboo, glass, steel and wood...
I enjoy looking at the spatial relationships between the things we adorn our built environments and habitats with. Call it my approach to Feng Shui and how we and our energies move in a space...
