My professional background encompasses 35 years producing bespoke commissions as a designer craftsman and through my industrial experience specialising in furniture production and design. This work I have done in conjunction with teaching in a number of educational settings. This long-standing experience and technical expertise underpins my professional relationship with the current companies I worked with.
