I came to this profession by a circuitous route. After the customary amount of academic experience, I found myself in the equally stressful and compensated aeries of banking and finance. But a vacation in California became a life change. One box closed and another opened. I found a new job as an apprentice woodcrafter in the fall of 1982. That was at first the means to get through a winter in the mountains around Donner Pass. Years elapsed in the job beyond that initial season, until circumstances eventually led me to San Francisco ten years later. Lacking a better idea, I opened my own studio and commenced to run through successive periods of kids' furniture, lawn furniture, faux finish cases, and cafթ tables. All the while, I remembered my apprenticeship learning marquetry and inlay techniques.


“In this modern age the warmth of polished wood offers relief from the digital, the virtual, and the fleeting.  I use simple designs with dramatic materials to make this box a secret place for your treasures- real and virtual.”

  • Care:  avoid direct sunlight and rub in a dab of furniture grade paste wax a few times a year
