I am a fifth-generation furniture maker. My grandfathers built churches and monasteries throughout the southwestern United States. My own road to becoming a specialized craftsman was circuitous. I worked as a roofer in Texas and a mechanic for a professional racing team before attaining graduate degrees in theology from Yale and Notre Dame. Meanwhile, the work of my ancestors held a singular interest, and so it was that I found a home with wood. My grandfathers’ 18th – century values of craftsmanship guide the care and consideration I invest in each piece. I strive to make work like theirs – as beautiful as it is useful. I hope you will find it so.
