Thanks for taking time to read about my work. I consider myself a craftsman and a storyteller. I'm often thinking (and daydreaming) about how people can find purpose in work and creativity and connect their lives to a meaningful story.
I write and speak about Craftspersonship and Table Community: how approaching our work as people of craft, and gathering at meals as people of mutuality leads to a sense of wholehearted participation in the world. I am committed to this work because I want to help people engage their lives, the lives of others, and the world around them with wonder and intentionality.
I also design and craft furniture that is urban inspired and made with intentional 'storied' purpose. For more info visit ThisIsUrbanMade.com
Currently, I live in Seattle with my wife Melissa; she is the most delightful person I've ever met. In Seattle I'm completing a Masters in Theology and the Arts at The Seattle School.
I'm also available to speak at various events, gatherings and workshops. Please reach out with further questions or just to say 'hi.' If you find yourself in Seattle, I would love to buy you coffee and hear your story.
