After 30 years working in Research & Development at the DuPont Co., I elected to accept the generous “early-retirement” package offered by the company in January of 2016.

I have been passionate about woodturning for many years, and I am thrilled that I can now pursue the craft full-time.  I hope to expand my skills and techniques, and share my work and other woodturning news and events here on the blog, and also on Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, and Facebook.

I am also active in the First State Woodturners Club, Delaware’s local Chapter of the AAW (American Association of Woodturners),  where I am currently serving my third term as Program Director and Website/Social Media Wizard.

Several pieces are now available for purchase in my Etsy Shop, and I have many more in the pipeline.
