Finding My Tribe

I simply love to design and build things. I grew up spending loads of time in my father’s shop just tinkering with whatever was close at hand. Now that I’m older I have my own shop.

I’m perfectly happy to make a living by making interesting things for interesting people all day long.

There are a lot of upsides to this artisan lifestyle but one downside is that it can be a bit lonely when you are the only one in the shop. In late 2017, I decided to start posting pictures of projects on various social media sites. A few people started noticing and following my work and, just like me, most of them were artisans and makers looking for ideas, collaboration and connection. I really enjoy interacting with this wonderful group of people. I’ve found my tribe.
