I started woodturning in 2002 and got involved with the Dallas Area Woodturners club (an American Association of Woodturners affiliate) in 2007, which connected me with the woodturning community. Through the club and its many members, I learned and grew a lot as a turner. In 2016, I became the treasurer of our club and continue as Vice President today.
After a long tenure in the telecommunication industry, which ended in 2016, I decided that I needed a new direction in my work life. With the loving support of my wife, in April of 2017, I started Woodturning Tool Store, an e-commerce business selling woodturning tools.
