I came into the world of timber framing relatively late. Before becoming an engineer I was a classroom teacher, worked in academics, and spent a couple of years in the restaurant business.
I’ve been in the guild for +20 years, during which I have been honing my interests in big sticks. Professional concerns notwithstanding, I am an inveterate tree lover and a passionate-nearly obsessed- gardener, spending any time I can outside in the dirt. When I’m not volunteering in some garden or helping people with landscape design I’m in the kitchen, cooking or in my basement studio, sewing.
Currently I live on the coast of Maine, where there seems to be an endless supply of islands, light houses and tidal pools to explore.
