I have a small shop in San Francisco’s Sunset District. My projects thread the design elements from my architecture background with fabrication processes culled from my extensive apprenticeship with a master woodworker; I think this combination makes my approach unique. I've been known to design and build everything from modern shelves and Victorian stairwells to high-end conference tables.
I received my Bachelor of Architecture from California College of the Arts in 2007. Pursuit of this degree allowed me to engage in architecture as both a conceptual and constructed pursuit—a perspective I gained through both schoolwork and extra-curricular efforts.
Working on design/build projects and interning at Studio Under Manufacture directed my interest toward executing complex design problems through the use of computer aided architectural design paired with computer numerical controlled machines. Mastery of the tools at hand shows itself in the completed job, whether that tool is AutoCAD or a band saw.
My goal, after achieving a solid foundation in digital architecture, was to learn how to build my ambitious designs with skilled hands. I achieved this goal completing a two-year apprenticing intensive under Dennis Hodges at DK Designs.
