La Porte, IN, US

It all started in my Grandpas Ford pick-up truck when I was a kid drving around looking for scrap metal or something to salvage behind some large companies and old factories. He could make something out of anything. For some reason it stuck. Fast forward 25 years and I have the eye he had for seeing something different when looking at an old window or door at the curb.

My creations are remade here locally in Indiana out of unwanted or discarded materials from back alleys, curbs, and garage sales. They are one-of-a-kind pieces with many stories. My creations are for sale in local antique stores.

Recycle. Reduce. Re-use. Feel Good.

All of my creations are for sale. Give me a shout!
