Every project that we participate in is an exercise in teamwork. Working in collaboration with other designers, customers, and production staff is what excites me. These interactions allow me to learn and improve every day. Applying the team approach to an art form where natural objects are the media results in truly extraordinary projects, new and different every time.
Throughout my years in the industry, I’ve have the unique experience of being both designer/estimator and the person that expedites the construction process. My involvement in any given project varies depending on which team member I’m working with. Whether it’s working through a design, building an estimate, or managing a project, I’m here to help the team.
Much of my time outside of the office is spent with family, especially my daughter Sadie. For the better part of eight years, while I lived in Chicago, I was a professional woodworker/cabinetmaker. This is work I still make time for, though on a much smaller scale. My latest undertaking is building an acoustic guitar, which I hope to complete soon.
