I have been using tools and making things for over 40 years. And teaching for over 20.
I started learning how to make things while working with my dad in his wood shop.  He put me in the environment to keep experimenting  and learning.  Through out my school years every job I had pertained to making things: carpentry, sign making, florist and props.  I went to School of Visual Arts in NYC to earn my BFA where I have been teaching since 94’.  Over the last 20 years I have been designing and fabricating many things including guitars, toys, furniture, clothes and more.
