I have been blacksmithing for over ten years creating many one-of-a-kind sculptures and commissioned works. While working with Kootenay Forge as a sub-contractor, I honed my production skills by making thousands of metal art products for the home.

Prior to setting up Goose Creek Forge in the Slocan Valley, I spent twelve years working as a metal engraver with my father in our family business Precision Engraving Co. Ltd. I graduated with my artist/blacksmith certificate from Sir Sandford Fleming College in Ontario. I work full-time in my metal studio and teach at KSA.
