I have a wide range of skills that have been developed through industry experience in a number of fields including TV, Education, and Industrial product development.
I have won numerous national and international awards.
And I just love to make things and help other people achieve their making goals.
I enjoy creating new and interesting things that don't currently exist. If you have an idea I will do my best to help you reach the goal of making it a reality.
I am an experienced teacher with a wide range of skills to share. This page currently focuses on woodturning due to my studio currently being equipped for this discipline.
I intend to add skills to my course offerings as the demand evolves. Currently, I am considering adding classical art-making techneques, Hand tool focus woodworking and Digital creative skills,
