I have been welding and banging on metal for almost as long as I can remember. I started out fixing things on my family’s farm, where I learned many of my skills from my father. Since then, a combination of formal education and on the job experience has fueled my passion for metal work. I enjoy making tools people can put to use. Finding the best balance between functionality and artistic beauty has become my goal. I strive to create things that others will find joy in, as well as myself.
