I started out woodworking in my father’s shop. I can still remember standing on a bucket at the bandsaw at a very young age. After college & graduate school I decided to pursue a career in furniture making. I attended the North Bennet Street School in Boston. I am a 2003 graduate of their Cabinet & Furniture Making program. In 2004 I joined the cooperative Fort Point Cabinetmakers where I am currently a member. I design & build custom furniture, built-ins and small objects.
I teach furniture making and woodworking at the North Bennet Street School in Boston. I am an adjunct instructor in their Cabinet & Furniture Making program and am a woodworking instructor in the Continuing Education program. I teach woodworking techniques at various schools on the east coast as well.
I have given woodworking demonstrations and talks at the National Museum of Industrial History, Society of Arts & Crafts, Old Sturbridge Village, Concord Museum, Peabody Essex Museum, Plimoth Plantation, Boston Society of Architects, along with other institutions in the New England area.
I have recently written an article and blog post for Fine Woodworking Magazine. The article is Tune Your Tablesaw and is in Issue 265, Winter 2017/2018. The blog post is about my favorite push stick.
My work has been shown at Fruitlands Museum (Harvard, MA), Society of Arts & Crafts (Boston, MA), Peters Valley School of Craft (Layton, NJ), Gallery 263 (Cambridge, MA), Pearl Street Gallery (Chelsea, MA), Mosesian Center for the Arts (Watertown, MA), The Umbrella Gallery (Concord, MA) and Windgate Gallery at NBSS (Boston, MA).
