An early love for woodworking and music led me to apprentice under Master Luthier Lawrence Wilke at the age of seventeen. After a three-year apprenticeship, he began making instruments on my own, with a particular passion for models of Stradivarius' works. In 2005, he was named a Master Violin Maker. He has received numerous awards from the Violin Society of America for violins, violas, and cellos.
