I make shiny things!

I make wonderful things out of metal for fabulous people of all genders. Things that feel like artifacts from a world that never was, or that look like something worn by the protagonist. By you.

I've been making things for as long as I can remember, but I started metalsmithing in 2009. I've been fortunate enough to be able to build up my very own workshop in my home! I feel a bit like a mad scientist or like the mechanic in the engine of a spaceship whenever I work there.

I went to school in computer science, and my day job is in the software industry. For me, making things with my hands is a soul-renewing opportunity, a way to regain balance between my mind and my body. I love breathing life into metal and forming beautiful artifacts from raw materials. And I love the moment when someone sees what I've made and can hardly contain their joy.
