I have been making furniture from bike parts (mostly rims) for over 20 years.
My work is comfortable and durable.

As long as I have been racing and fixing bikes, I have been photographing bike races and LOTS of other things. I intend to offer some of my photographic work here as well.

Oh, and now I am working with motorcycles...
