As a woodturner, I’m continually seeking the perfect balance between the form I create and the natural beauty of the wood itself. And because all my profits go to humanitarian organizations, I always feel that the more beautiful a woodturning is, the more Ill be able to alleviate suffering with my contributions.

I turn wood because I think its the most beautiful way to let wood express itself, even while I ultimately impose a form thats fully, consciously designed. A perfectionist, I find the tantalizing possibility of perfection in woodturning elusive, yielding work that has been taken as far as possible.

My techniques have been shaped by the extraordinary work of woodturners such as David Ellsworth and Bert Marsh. I moves in smaller dimensions than many turners, but these dimensions permit unusual techniques, including true inlaying of wood and metal in turnings, detailed lamination of woods, delicate finial designs, and hollow-form turning requiring only the smallest of openings.
