I retired from teaching in 2003 and I took up chainsaw carving in 2007. Wintering in Florida I discovered that he also enjoyed hand carving and that has influenced his "sculpture" styles.

I also enjoy chainsaw carving as a "performance art" and jump at any opportunity to carve for the public. I pop up my canopy, wrap it with deer mesh and carve away.

I also love helping others get started. I have done seminars for Lee Valley Tools, events in Zephyrhills and Tampa, Florida, and also in Manitoba, assisting Walter Keller with his carving camps.

In addition to carving I run this web site at my own expense and love creating the patterns that I share with carvers all over the world.
