My interest in woodworking began as a young child, watching my father. Although I never started working wood until a few years ago, he had planted the seed. My father was a woodworker and boat builder. When he passed away unexpectedly a few years ago, I decided to devote my career path to woodworking. To be a student at The College of the Redwoods is a dream come true. I am truly honored and privileged to be a part of such an extraordinary program. The journey has only just begun.
