  • Noah, Geppetto and Da Vinci. What a team!!!!


After completing a degree in Film, I realised it wasn’t the area I wanted to work in. I was looking for a job that required both physical and mental skills and provided opportunities to create, make and play. A job that was real, I found it! I joined Carpenter Oak in 2006 and now work with the glazing team and as a principle carpenter. My work has taken me to remote and beautiful parts of the British Isles and Europe and I take great pride in my carpentry. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two children, making music and baking lots of bread.
