Originally from Hawaii, I have resided in Western Pennsylvania for the last 45 years. My chosen field of work was construction engineering and field installation. I started out in 1969 & 1970 by studying Industrial Drafting and Design at a small electronics school in Monrovia, CA, and later in the early 1970’s Electrical Engineering at Penn State Fayette Campus in Uniontown, PA. I traveled quite extensively throughout my career with projects all over North America, Asia and Europe. Along the way always finding time to dabble in woodworking projects which is my true passion. In the early 1980’s I started tinkering with a small lathe looking for a creative outlet. As a lifelong wood connoisseur, I can honestly say my passion started a lifetime ago growing up in Hawaii by touring Hawaiian culture museums and galleries as a youngster and now is one of the key influences in my work along with passed artisans of ancient cultures and modern artisans.
