I grew up in the Wisconsin Driftless Area on a small dairy farm, gaining a great appreciation for the outdoors and nature. I live in the Southern Kettle Moraine State Forest with my wife, Chris, and our dog, Zephyr. We enjoy hiking, skiing, kayaking and bicycling, which makes the Southern Kettle Moraine a great fit for our lifestyle.
I started wood carving when my father needed a cane. I then made my uncles each a cane. My boat carvings were an inspiration from a kayaking trip that we took. I started making whirly-gigs when a friend asked me to repair one for him.
I continue carving for the joy of bringing wood back to life. Most of my wood carvings are made from the wood off of our property. I use a variety of tools from wood rasps to a chain saw and a lot of sanding by hand.
