Tom is primarily self-taught in his age-old craft, and has been wood turning for over 20 years. He enjoys working full time creating functional, one-of-a-kind, artistic and collectible pieces, hand turned on a lathe. Tom uses mostly found or recycled wood whenever possible. He specializes in delicate natural edge hollow forms turned from green wood. He is influenced primarily by shapes found in nature as well as from ancient Indian cultures.

Tom enjoys teaching wood turning and doing demonstrations for people in his studio. He has earned many awards for his work and has been featured in such magazines as New Orleans Homes and Lifestyles (Sept. ’06), Woodwork Magazine (Feb. ’06), American Woodturner (Fall ’04), and Southern Breeze (Spring ’04). He has completed a residency at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center and has a BS in Mathematics from University of Michigan as well as an MBA in Finance from Harvard University.
