My interest in woodworking goes back to my time as a kid watching The Woodwright’s Shop, The New Yankee Workshop, and This Old House on TV. I didn’t have access to the tools they used or the means to start woodworking at a young age, but they were certainly a catalyst for me to start woodworking.

When I reached high school I was finally able to explore woodworking first hand and I embraced the opportunity. I quickly developed a rapport with my high school woodworking instructor and spent much of my free time in the wood shop designing and building furniture. After high school I took a hiatus from woodworking and pursued a career in marine biology. I studied at the University of California, Santa Cruz where I graduated with a degree in Biology.

I was extremely fortunate to work as a research assistant with some of the top marine mammal biologist in the field. The work included studying the physiology and foraging ecology of:

California sea lions, elephant seals, and harbor seals along the coast of California
Laysan and Black-footed albatrosses on Tern Island, Hawaii
Antarctic fur seals at Cape Shirreff Field Station, Livingston Island, Antarctica.
After traveling and moving around extensively for 15 years, my wife and I decided to settle down and purchase a home in Phoenix Arizona with a dedicated workshop. The shop space provided a path back into woodworking and eventually a business.

We now own and operate Seganti Woodworking where I build heirloom quality furniture, including rocking chairs based on the original Sam Maloof design.
