I started my journey in blacksmithing in 1984 and started running the shop as a part time business in 1990. After retiring from a 27 year carrier as a professional firefighter in 2014 I picked up my hammer full time. Today I specialize in making tools and hardware for wood workers. At the same time I have started to share my 30 plus years of experience with newer blacksmiths by way of YouTube. The fascination of forging hot iron never goes away. In the future i hope to explore many additional avenues in the world of blacksmithing.
