BIO Information:  

Born Toledo Ohio  
Attended Whitmer High School Toledo
Attended Univ of Toledo Engineering Machine and Tool Design
While in high school one of our requirements was a shop class and I choose to take wood shop.  There we spent time making small boxes and also some lathe time. I worked my entire career in the garment industry for manufacturing companies working both product development and sales.  The last 12 years were spent as President of Nye Uniform in Grand Rapids.  In March of 2007 we sold the business and retired.  
In the spring of 2009 I bought my first lathe.  Remembering that high school class, I thought I would go back and see if I would like to turn again.  Also in the summer of 2009 I attended classes at John C Campbell Folk Art School.  That did more to improve my artistic attitude toward turning.  I have also taken classes at Woodcraft stores in Tucson, Phoenix and Grand Rapids.  Currently teaching classes at Woodcraft Grand Rapids. I have done demos at the American Assoc. of Woodturners Symposiums in 2011 and 2012 for Carter Products a Michigan based company.
I work as a tool consultant for them during the year Below you will find a list of the places I have been juried into and some of the events I have taken part in.
