I have been living in Bozeman Montana since 2004. For over a decade I have been working on coaxing beautiful musical tones from little piles of wood. I very much enjoy the process of making instruments and have completed over 60 to date. Instrument making is very challenging as well as rewarding. When not busy in the shop I enjoy photography, occasionally downhill skiing, improving my hand writing, and trying to make sense of electronic circuits. Listening to one of my instruments being played in performance is always enjoyable.
