Since my teen years, I have been a guitar junkie: Listening, acquiring, playing, and indulging in all things related to the instrument. In 2010, following a mountain biking accident that threatened to significantly limit my ability to play, I began building guitars to get around the limitations I encountered from the accident. The love affair intensified, as I discovered the boundless thrill and satisfaction that comes from turning raw lumber into a beautiful-looking and sounding instrument.
I now make custom electric and acoustic instruments to commission that gently, but consistently nudge the boundaries of design, material use, ergonomics, and tonal experimentation. I build with established and time-tested wood species, as well as unusual but exceptional tonewoods from the southern end of Africa.
Each of my guitars is unique and is designed and painstakingly hand-built to extract the most aesthetically and sonically coherent guitar that I can from each precious piece of timber.
