About

Turning "Nothing" into Something

There is value and beauty everywhere, we just have to change the way we look at the world and ourselves to see it. By taking cast aside items like used wine bottles or craigslist giveaways into display pieces, we start to shift the way we judge the value of something or someone. Naturally felled trees uprooted in a storm are turned into pieces anyone would be proud to display. Driftwood piled on the riverbank of the Potomac is converted in a handsome lights and reminders that there is more to see than first meets the eye. I started making these things as a creative outlet to challenge the way I see the world, myself, and others. As I open a new chapter in my own life, I am taking a chance and offering them back to the world they came from with a new life. I hope you get as much enjoyment displaying them as I get making them.

    An unlikely creator/maker, I spent a career as an Air Force officer, fighter pilot, and veteran. I am attracted to the metaphor of turning something cast aside, or never valued at all, into something people admire and want to display.
