After 8 years in the US Army, including a tour to Baghdad, Iraq as a combat medic with an IED clearance platoon, I came home to Kansas City, MO to pursue the American dream. I completed my Bachelor's degree at the University of Central Missouri, and then went on to earn a Master's degree in the cognate fields of International Relations and Comparative Politics at Missouri State University. While at Missouri State, I met my wife, Brittany at our campus ministry.
After finishing grad school and entering into "the real world" I found myself living for my time away from work, which was well spent doing what I love most: hanging out with my wife, and creating furniture.
Creating things out of wood has been a passion of mine for years, and because of my appreciation for quality construction and materials, the furniture I create is something that you can enjoy for the rest of your life.
