Artisan Bio

I am one of the younger members of the CLA. I was born in 1995, and have been forging knives and related work since the summer of 2010. I build custom knives at my forge in central Michigan. I have been mentored and advised by such great artists as Jud Brennan, Carlton Matteo, and Tim Albert. I also forge decorative iron work.
