I am a born and bred Minnesotan who loves living the outdoor northern lifestyle. In the winter you’ll find me snowshoeing and cross-country skiing and in the summer canoeing and hiking.
I live on my family homestead overlooking the scenic bluffs and valleys of southeastern Minnesota, located three miles from the Mississippi River. I am the fourth generation to live there, and I come from a family of independent craftsmen, loggers, farmers, and mechanics.
I held various jobs until I found my true calling in my late 20’s as a carpenter/cabinetmaker. Since then I’ve worked on everything from a birdhouse in the backyard to a mansion on a hill. My love of history sparked my interest and participation in historical re-enactments. I have since worked on and developed products influenced by historical designs
