About Me

It all began with a buzz box...

Back in 2005-ish, I was hanging out in my garage on the west side of Columbus, with my roommate. He was gifted an old rusty Studebaker pickup truck that he was using to build a rat rod. We had terrible tools and equipment then, being in our early 20's and broke, but we did have a little stick welder that I was quite fascinated with. My roomie taught me to use it, and I was hooked. I welded some of the old car parts we had lying around into random sculpture and furniture. I was working at a little hot rod shop at the time, so I was able to bring junk parts home and practice. I liked welding so much that I took some classes at the local community college. I joined an artist community workshop to get more tool time, and eventually began teaching welding classes there. As a full-time firefighter and paramedic with the City of Columbus, I don't have as much time for art or welding, but I still enjoy creating. This site is a very simple way for me to share my portfolio of work, as well as advertise a few pieces I may have available for sale from time-to-time. I currently do not create custom works of art by request, due to lack of time and personal workspace, but don't hesitate to say hello or inquire about available work. Thanks for taking time to visit.
