I am a Halifax, Nova Scotia based woodworker, furniture and object designer and maker. Operating out of a small private studio, I conceptualize, design and carefully handcraft furniture, lighting and functional design objects that go from my hands directly into the hands of their new owner. I specialize in modern furniture, merging contemporary aesthetics with minimal, modernist and vernacular furniture influences; forms that evolve with the times while staying rooted in history.

I utilize the best of modern technology in combination with time-honoured traditional techniques and use only premium grade, sustainable materials. I am dedicated to an elevated level of craftsmanship, I make items that will stand the test of time and are incomparable to anything off the assembly line. Every piece is made in-house or in collaboration with other local small-scale makers and manufacturers, when necessary. All local, all handmade, no outsourcing.

I have exhibited my furniture and other design work at trade shows and design festivals alongside well known and up and coming designers and makers, from Canada and abroad. Some past exhibitions include Ontario Crafts Council’s “Design for Living”, The International Contemporary Furniture Fair and Toronto Design Offsite Festival, where I have twice been awarded by Designlines Magazine for the best products at Toronto Design week in 2014 and 2015.

While I have an ever changing line up of my own furniture and other objects for sale in my shop; I have always specialized in designing and building custom furniture. Over the years I have developed a clientele that comes to me so I can impart my style on their project, while making a piece of custom furniture that is still uniquely theirs. I have built a reputation for a strong ability to design within constraints and deliver a finished product that meets my clients aesthetic and functional criteria. I am proud to say that a high percentage of my customers return for another piece of furniture and that I also maintain a number of loyal long-term clients that I work for on a regular basis. My availability for custom furniture commissions is limited but, I encourage any inquiries, as I rarely turn down an interesting project, so long as the client is able to wait a little while.
