I’ve been hovering around Carpenter Oak since 2002 when Don joined as a Carpenter. The guys took us under their wing and welcomed us into the Carpenter Oak family. Since then Don and I have gained a few more wrinkles and produced a family of our own. I’ve contributed a few photographs and attended some shows whilst freelancing but I’m now an official member of the team tasked with being word smith and blogger. Carpenter Oak has a great work-life ethos, people’s health and happiness is important to them, they allow me the flexibility to work around my home-life and children.
