Welcome

Thank you for visiting my website where you can view photographs of my work.  Hopefully you will also get to know something about me and the work that i can do for you.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from FIU in Miami, where i majored in Ceramic design… I always wanted to be a potter… I became a father instead (one of the best things i ever did).  I have been married for 40 years to the love of my life… Maria.  My son Steven is an artist and bartender… my son Michael is an architect… and my daughter Sarah is a costume & set designer.

Over the years I have done home remodeling, installed garage doors and built gates and access systems and even grown beansprouts.  For 15 years I was plant manager for my Catholic Church parish in both Miami and Dunedin Florida responsible for all the building, maintenance and cleaning of a large physical plant and school.  For most of this time i also maintained a wood shop building custom hardwood cabinets, furniture and heirloom  boxes and doing custom woodworking.  During this time i continued to dabble in my claywork.

Unfortunatly, in this difficult economy… I found myself “downsized” for Christmas of 2009 because the church decided they could no longer afford me.  Well… if i was going to get lemons then i would have to make lemonade.  So i called up people i knew and had worked with and soon after i opened my shop doing custom woodworking.   I have been blessed to have been busy ever since.  I have built kitchens, bathroom vanities, furniture and even the sets for a play at Ruth Eckerd hall.  I build displays for a local company in Clearwater (where i once worked), and i also do carpentry work for a local general contractor.
