My education is Mechanical Engineering, work history includes Drafting Room Supervision, Design Engineer, Project Manager and Chief Engineer.
I have been seriously turning for six years. During that time I have served as president of the Waxhaw Woodturners, served as a Director for the North Carolina Symposium and am a member of Southern Piedmont Woodturners.
I have done demonstrations for several schools, assisted in group teaching at several high schools, had a hand in the teaching of several groups completing the AAW Waxhaw Woodturners Youth Turning program. I regularly take part in the club demonstrations at craft days, street fairs and county fairs.
I also teach private lessons either at my shop or at the students location and have done a number of club demonstrations and workshops; in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
My turnings have been exhibited and won blue ribbons and Best of Show at the county level and have been exhibited at the state level.
