In 2007 I gave up a successful job in computer programming to follow my lifelong dream of becoming a cabinet maker. Having built furniture for family and friends over the years it became clear that I had designs on a different career path.
I relocated from London to Devon and spent an intensive year training at the woodworking school of renowned designer and fine furniture maker, David Savage. Under his tutelage, I honed the essential skills and craft of the trade, with great emphasis on hand and traditional techniques, while at the same time developing my own distinctive style.
Now back in a London based workshop, I take pride in creating individual pieces for a growing network of clients. It gives me great satisfaction to deliver a finished piece knowing its entire history: from the idea, to the purchase of the raw wood, the cutting, the shaping and the finishing that finally leads to a new creation.
I am also a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen, an organisation that supports and promotes the work of crafts people.
