I started this business in 2008 to make a living doing what I love. My passion for woodworking began at an early age building treehouses and forts in the woods of New Jersey and my skills were honed working in the family woodworking business. While working for over a decade as a construction manager supervising the construction of churches, schools and synagogues, I was exposed to the works of great designers and craftsmen such as Wharton Esherick and Russel Wright and was inspired to open my own studio.
I set up my first shop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn specializing in handmade one-of-a-kind furniture and unique and distinctive retail design and outfitting. By early 2015 I had outgrown the space in Greenpoint and relocated to Red Hook to keep up with the expansion of my business.
My pieces are crafted with attention to the smallest details using only the highest quality, sustainable materials. All of my projects begin with a consultation with my clients to discuss which designs work best for their home or business.
