I've been making things all my life. My grandfather was a carpenter, so we had plenty of wood scraps and tools. My dad worked as an aircraft mechanic when he was young. He passed on the philosophy that we could fix or build just about anything. I built a lot of things when I was a kid, but mostly tree houses. At one time we had 5 of them.

In high school I got serious about woodworking, and later added some metal work as well. After school I worked in the aircraft tooling industry, doing layout and design work. Along the way I have tried my hand as a luthier making a few banjo's, dulcimers, and an electric violin.
