About

Welcome to the forge.

I have called Kalamazoo, MI home since 1989, when the Kalamazoo Civic theater hired me to be their youth theater technical director. Since that time, I have designed and built hundreds of shows for many of the areas’ theaters. When I’m not building a show, I can be found making theatrical weapons and teaching actors how to fight with them. Having received a B.A. in technical design and production from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, I also work as a sculpture artist in my studio. My main medium is steel, but I also work with brass, copper, fabric, and lots of reclaimed throw-aways. The weapons and sculpture studio is named Combat Ready Art. I make a range of pieces, from large-scale sculptures to knives and barbecue tools.
