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,

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
