Biography
I started working for Carpenter Oak in 2015 after finishing 6th-form in Totnes. Since then I have been learning a lot about carpentry and worked on some amazing frames.  The most interesting was on building I worked on with Ben which had a curved pitched roof like a segment of an amphitheatre which made for some complex geometry and carpentry.

I live near Stoke Gabriel with my wife Daisy and two little boys, Sollie and Casper. I like to spend time camping and being on the river with my family and friends. I also enjoy spending my out time looking for unusual birds and insects whilst out walking on the coast and moor.
