The word Passion is defined as an intense emotion, compelling enthusiasm or desire. It wasn't until recently that I had an epiphany that woodworking is my true passion. I spent my early years growing up in Waterbury, CT. It wasn't until 1980 at the age 7 I moved to Puerto Rico with my family. While I was there I started helping my father working in the construction business. This experience allowed me to learn the ins and outs of various trades, including wood working. I took this knowledge back with me when I returned to the states at the age of 14. I began doing small projects here and there but was never committed to the art. At the age of 19 I decided to go on a different career path which included sheet metal and mechanical engineering. After 20 plus years of being a project manager, and working as a consultant on various projects there was a part of me that was not fulfilled. I now realize at age 43 that I have known my passion all along, in fact many times it was staring me in the face...woodworking. My passion is to create beautiful, functional pieces of art for others to enjoy and use on a daily basis. I pour my heart and soul into my craft. My hope is to provide as much joy for others from my pieces as I receive from making them.

I’m just wondering if it’s worth to open a business as a woodworker or keep doing what I’m doing for people on the side
