Welcome to my shop!
I was first exposed to woodworking as a child. Both my grandfather and father would build things, allowing me to “supervise” or, occasionally, even help out! Over time, other activities monopolized my free-time and I lost some interest in the hobby. Time passed, and eventually my wife was pregnant with our first child and my first instinct was that I wanted to build something for her to cherish for a lifetime. From there, I was re-addicted to the hobby, and started developing a lot of skills.
At this point, my shop is a healthy mix of power tools and handtools, lending a very unique touch to the pieces I design and build.
Let’s get personal
Woodworking is not my full-time job, but it is a passion! My actual job is in the semiconductor industry designing really tiny electronic circuits built on silicon crystals (aka Analog IC Design), and I have a Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering that helped jump-start this career. If you’re interested in more, I have another site that chronicles my random career-related musings here.
I live just outside of Rochester, NY and originally grew up outside of Buffalo, NY… so I am a Western New Yorker, born and bred. As painful as it can be at times, I am a huge Buffalo Sabres fan (and hockey fan in general) and, of course, love the Bills. I’m also very big into music with a range of interests (and have been playing the guitar for over 20 years).
If nothing you see in my shop is quite your jam, feel free to contact me about doing custom work!
