Welcome! If you’ve made it to this page I’m guessing you’d like to know a little more about me. I’m a husband and father that loves art, photography, and woodcrafts. Simply put, I love my family, I like to make pretty things, and I enjoy the learning process and personal growth that goes along with it all. Of course, this creative process is usually not easy and (for me) comes bundled with a fair amount of anxiety that has to be worked through as I go.

 If you’d like to see and hear more, then please follow along as I share my art, photography, woodcrafts, and general ramblings relating to my creative experience.

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

-Calvin Coolidge
