Born and raised in Portland Oregon I am proud to say that I am a third generation Sheet Metal Worker. I have enjoyed making things out of metal since my first metals class in the 7th grade. I took classes throughout middle and high school in metal and woodworking. My Sheet Metal career began in 1992 and I have been hooked every since. I served a 5 year apprenticeship and have had the privelage to work with many skilled, talented and creative people throughout my career. I've always taken a great deal of pride in the projects I've worked on throughout my career. In the last few years I have started creating artwork in my spare time as a hobby and to feed my creative desires. I've found it refreshing and rewarding and plan to continue creating "works of art" for many years to come. When I create a project I start without knowing what the finished project will look like. I enjoy letting the creativity flow during the process. I've just begun down this path and look forward to where it will take me creatively.
