I began working as a carpenter and quickly found that my design ideas expanded beyond the world of wood working. I began seeking new work mediums and quickly realized that metal was the answer. I became a professional firefighter with the city of Indianapolis in 1999. My new schedule allowed me to better pursue my metal working interests. I currently design and build custom furniture and sculpture for a variety of clients. I also have a passion for vintage items and unique "Big Boy Toys". I also build custom toys for individuals on occasion.
