I'm on a mission to create more makers.

I am a lifelong maker, entrepreneur, teacher, and public speaker. For the past fifteen years I have been on a mission to help people learn hands-on skills. Now I’m taking my 35+ years of maker experience and sharing it with the world.  Even after COVID-19 shut down the maker school I created, I still have the desire to empower people with these incredibly valuable skills. 

Makers are those who can create amazing things with their hands, using tools and raw materials. I believe we all have the genetics to be makers.  My goal is to save you time, save you money, and teach you valuable hands-on skills!

On this website, I will share with you my skills, my projects, what I’ve learned along the way, and my thoughts on the importance of making things. There is a beauty, a zen, when time spent learning and creating.  I want to show you how to achieve this state-of-mind and live a very rewarding maker life
