About:I like to think of myself as a renaissance man. I'm interested in a lot of things, but most importantly I'm interested in learning, being capable, and doing things for myself. I've learned to knit, sew, and macrame. I've dabbled in toy making, knife making, armor and prop making. I've worked with wood, metal, bone, and leather. I've done some costuming for plays with my wife, who has also been a co-conspirator in many other projects. Some of my project goals are to make a recurve bow, refinish a found rocking chair, build a piece of furniture from scratch, design and make a coat, vac-form stormtrooper armor (yes I'm a nerd), etc.
