I am an engineer by education and training having served 28 years in the US Navy. After retiring from the Navy I continued working in the engineering field until my second retirement in 2009. After visiting the New Mexico area for 10 years, my wife Christina and I finally moved to Santa Fe in 2010.
I have been working with wood for about 25 years now and have been turning since 1999. I turn for the enjoyment and seeing what secrets lie beneath the bark. My work has been exhibited at several galleries and museums.
I believe that turning should be fun and you should enjoy the process. I have demonstrated at several clubs and regional symposiums and have tried to relay these qualities to the listeners.
