My primary goal as an artist is to design and construct functional furniture items in a studio setting using traditional joinery methods and techniques. I use a minimalist's approach in my designs, drawing from and adapting furniture forms from the European Baroque and New-classical periods. In addition, I incorporate motives from both ancient and modern sources.

In all of my designs I pay very close attention to what Gothic builders called "true measure." True measure is a unity created by the sections and subsections of an object having proportions which are corresponding rations of the object's overall proportions.
