Initially trained as a marine biologist I defiantly took the indirect route into carpentry and timber framed buildings. Inspired by my dad (joiner and house builder) I ditched the snorkel and bought a hammer!
After training, working and gaining experience with various timber frame companies I finally settled at Carpenter Oak in 2007. Work ethic, fellow workers and challenging projects all contributed to a brilliant workplace in a great part of the world.
My career-driven (also very thoughtful) wife has recently taken employment in the right direction - even further West! This means I now operate from a small office in Falmouth, where thanks to cyberspace, I can continue to work on a freelance basis as part of the Carpenter Oak design team and effectively contribute as a foot in the ground in Cornwall
