About

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I am currently 32 yrs old and have been married to a beautiful woman for 6 yrs. I have two precious little daughters who are five and one. The past five years have been a process of overcoming a tragic accident. My left hand was pulled through a non-remorseful table saw that has put me through 12 surgeries of reconstruction with more to come. I had just became a dad 2 months prier to the injury so you can just imagine the disgruntlement in learning how to be a dad and also how to use one hand. This was no easy tragedy for my wife either, but she has stuck whole-heartily through this. I have searched for jobs that i could possibly do but only have come up with depression and loss of hope. I began challenging myself to making these rings and have enjoyed it so much with much frustration as you can imagine and am now enthusiastic to present them to you…

I've always enjoyed working and creating with my hands. I'm always trying new things. For a long time I had been a auto technician and then slowly moved into construction. I love creating with my hands so much that I became a magician for close to ten years, during that time of working with cars and construction. I moved to California from Ohio to go to school. I supported myself through school with handy-man work. Shortly after this I met my wife and moved back to Ohio and worked as a bread baker.

While in Ohio I began working with the Amish in cabinetry. I was then offered a opportunity to refinish and install hardwood floors in the bay area of California. This is unfortunately where I lost the use of my hand. These past two years i began oil painting and creating these wooden rings.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I wanted to give you a sense of me and how this shop came about. I want to be an inspiration for others and encourage others to keep chasing victory...
