this is

where the

process

begins.

each time

with a bit

more knowledge

encoded

in millimeters

of wood.

When you pick up a violin I’ve made, I want you to feel a clear connection: to feel that the string, the instrument, and the bow are one. I want the instrument to translate your musical ideas into musical realities.

Creations

I turn blocks of wood into instruments that magnify the individuality of contemporary musicians and also restore instruments for world class auction houses, players, and dealers.

I am currently photographing and writing about my favorite new pieces. If you would like to see or play my instruments in the meantime, please feel free to contact me.

I would be honored to craft your instrument. Let me hear you.
