About

From Sea to Shop

I am a home-schooled studio furniture maker with 38 years of experience and have been a full time furniture maker for the past 9 years, but I had a prior career in the United States Navy as a nuclear engineering qualified Surface Warfare Officer where I commanded three warships and operated cruiser and aircraft carrier nuclear reactors.

I became a studio furniture maker in 1976 when I was an Ensign, although at the time I did not know it by that name; I just liked to design and make custom furniture. I knew that eventually I would be a professional maker. During my career I made furniture whenever I was not at sea (which was a great deal of time, serving in seven ships), and collected many of the tools I would need in my business. In 2002 my wife and I moved to the secluded forests of Northumberland County, Virginia where I began construction on my workshop, and in 2005 I was officially in the furniture designer/maker business. Since then, my furniture has been featured in numerous exhibitions and has garnered more than a dozen awards, as well as appearing in four books, Studio Furniture: Today’s Leading Woodworkers, Fine Wood Artists, Bespoke: Furniture from 101 International Artists, Mind and Hand: Contemporary Studio Furniture.
