About The Artisan
After completing my first guitar, I was hooked…I knew this is where I wanted to focus my talents. I found my passion as a luthier – 19 years later I continue to do what I love every day.
My love of woodworking goes back to my childhood. My father was a craftsman and working along side him as a young boy I learned the skills necessary for fine woodworking. Of course, at the time I was unaware I would return to woodworking many years later and how these skills would serve me so well.
In school I earned my degree in Graphic Design. I had a successful 20 year career as a graphic designer, but the calling for fine woodworking was always there. On the side I built many pieces of fine furniture – but it never completely satisfied my woodworking desire. So, in 1999 I became a student of Thomas Knatt at the Luthier’s workshop in Concord Massachusetts. My passion was found.
