BIO

My interests around the metal working field were first inspired by West African blacksmiths who continue to perfect their craft by making farming tools and forged instruments. I aspire to develop as a talented tool maker and utilitarian artist, incorporating the dynamic and imperfect beauty of nature into my work. I hope to inspire other worker-artists by writing about nature, history and science.
