Design. Build. Live. You're In Good Hands.
Each day that I arrive at the woodshop,
after biking through the noise and
morning industrial traffic of Bushwick,
Brooklyn, I think about two things:
wood in all its beautiful incarnations:
tree, lumber, board, scrap, and the
dust left when one becomes the
other; and people I know and don’t,
moving through the space where they
live: where they keep their books or
shoes, where they sit to read or lace
up. How they might bring tea or
cocktails across the room to friends,
or reach sleepily for a toothbrush. How
their space makes them feel.
For all of my first 25 years I was around and then
involved in the transformative process of remodeling
almost every inch of our family home in Ann Arbor, MI,
of rethinking all indoor space. Eventually I was
compelled by outdoor spaces, landshaping with new
materials like bluestone, water flows, and extensive
wood decks. And in the midst of such physical, tactile
work grew a fascination with photography, the quiet
technology of capturing an image.
In 2007 this study and experience came with me to
Brooklyn and is now distilled in the work I do.
Design: A thoughtful, practiced eye and concern with
unique pieces appropriate to those who will use and
enjoy them. Build: A skilled, meticulous shop ethic
and appreciation of the beauty of natural materials.
Live: Functional, helpful pieces that will integrate
in a powerful way into the lives of those for whom I
