As a paramedic, I ‘save’ people. As a paddling coach, I assist people in reaching their athletic goals. As a woodworker, I save myself and try to inspire others to be curious and create. With steam bent lamps, I hope to illuminate lives with beauty and intrigue. Wood sculpture (functional art) and unique furniture pieces are a way to escape the horrors of my career. It’s important to find ways to sooth and elevate your soul.
