designed to delight and surprise.

I have had a studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard since 2004, where I design and craft my individual pieces. The Navy Yard and Brooklyn, are elemental to my creativity -- particularly the powerful draw of the Navy Yard’s history and the distinct architecture of the place. Many of the found objects that make their way into my work are salvaged from the Yard’s old buildings. Just as important is the camaraderie and support of fellow artisans who share my passion for building and creating, and who provide valuable support and feedback throughout the creative process.
