I was trained as an architect at UC Berkeley and have been working exclusively as a furniture maker for over a decade. I try to seamlessly bridge design and craft to bring each project to life from initial sketch to final installation. Working directly with my clients during the entire design process ensures that the final product exceeds their expectations. Before materials are purchased I create photo-realistic renderings of the work so that nothing is left to chance. When the design phase is finished, I hand select locally sourced hardwoods and the appropriate metals and begin fabrication. I mainly work with wood, steel, aluminum, brass, and glass but am open to alternative materials if the project calls for a more creative approach. My full service wood/metal fabrication studio can tackle any job... except for CNC work. Like John Henry, I still do all of my work by hand.
