I am a professional musician, composer, & educator, who got seriously interested in woodturning after meeting Bruce Perry. He became my mentorand friend and got me involved with Front Range Woodturners, where I currently serve as VP/Program Director and Youth Mentor. I am also a member of AAW, Rocky Mountain Woodturners, and Colorado Woodworkers Guild, and am a strong advocate for clubs as a resource for turners at all skill levels.
While I enjoy all aspects of turning, I am particularly interested in stuff that isn’t exactly round: winged vessels, multi-axis turnings, and tri-corner pieces. More recently I’ve been exploring texturing, burning, and other surface enhancements. I’ve had the opportunity to learn from many fine woodturners, and it is rewarding to be able to “regift” that knowledge and inspiration by teaching and demonstrating.
