I love everything about the acoustic guitar. I love its flowing curves and the way it feels in the left and right hands. I love the visual textures and patterns of its various woods. I love the deep, rich sounds it makes and the spectrum of musical genres it fits comfortably in. It’s no wonder the guitar has become so firmly rooted in cultures around the globe.
For the past two decades, I’ve made my living building custom objects by hand. Since 2015, my sole creative focus has been the steel-string acoustic guitar.
From 2016-2019, I was fortunate to study as a full-time apprentice to legendary luthier Ervin Somogyi. The experience fundamentally altered my perception of the acoustic guitar and made a deep impression on my approach to the work.
I now live in Portland, OR with my wife and our two daughters.
I offer custom guitars built by hand in my home workshop.
