Who Am I?
I’m a hobbyist woodworker building and designing mostly craft projects that I sell at art and craft fairs. I have an art and design background that I try to incorporate into my woodworking, creating original pieces using a mixture of exotics and non-traditional materials like plywood, metals and ‘found objects’. How Did I Get Started in Woodworking?
Back in March of 2011 I was looking to get some of my photography professionally framed for an art show. I was shocked at the cost and thought I could do it myself. I went out and bought a miter saw, started watching all the woodworking shows on TV and YouTube and it just took off out of control from there. I never did make those picture frames but it changed my life.
Who I actually Am
For a living, I'm the lead web developer for a creative agency called Concentrek Group
in Toledo, Ohio. On top of being a web developer, I'm also a videographer and photographer for said agency when called upon.
Outside of work I have a lot of hobbies to keep me busy. I consider myself a photographer using mostly using available light. I also sing and play guitar in a garage rock back called Hound
. We're loud and you probably won't like us. I have a home recording studio and last year I recorded 12 local garage bands and released a free CD
thanks to generous donations from area business.
