OWNER & CRAFTSMAN
I grew up in Wayne, Pennsylvania and currently live in near-by Chester Springs. I have been self-employed for over 25 years, starting my first business when I was 12. I started out doing landscaping and tree work, continued this through high school, and then went on to earn my bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from Temple University.
After graduation, I began renovating and reselling properties on the side. This led to a full-time career in construction. In my contracting experiences, I found I was drawn to the finer-end of things: the trim work and more detail-oriented aspects of the jobs where I could apply what I learned about design in college. Over time, I began furniture and built-in construction which allowed me to continue to design and create, albeit in a different medium than landscaping. I enjoy the artistic aspect of it, and coming up with custom solutions allows me use my creative problem solving skills.
As a result of the path I took and how my interests developed over time, I now create custom furniture, cabinetry, built-ins, mantles, and other woodworking projects.
One of my ongoing projects is the construction of my own home in Chester Springs. I am doing the majority of the work myself in my spare time - including building my own cabinets, built-ins, etc. - which is why it is a much more long-term project than normal. As with all my projects, I am building my own home to be around long after I am gone. I want it to be here one day for my daughters to enjoy and hopefully their children and beyond. On your project, I want to do the same for you and your family.
