After restoring an old timber frame house in the Italian Alps I discovered my passion of working with wood creatively.
The strong idea of building meaningful and functional furniture has followed my paths ever since. As a self taught furniture maker I learned from many trade books. Making chairs out of my basement I got to know my neighbor a joinery master who worked in the guild for more than 50 years.
I started to set up a workshop at my old farm house in Italy where I stayed without electricity focused on building chairs.
The idea of using mostly traditional tools and techniques has influenced my work a lot.
Being a full time woodworker for the last years in the States I am back in Freiburg Germany.
Here I teach handtool woodworking courses and offer one of a kind pieces on comission.
