Everyone must start somewhere and here is where I started over two years ago. Thanks to my buddy David Selfe for introducing me to blacksmithing that blossomed into a passion for bladesmithing. Along with Billy Salyers and Britt Barnes who patiently answered the plethora of questions, gave me feedback, taught me, and mentored me to get me where I am now. I continue to learn, trying new techniques, new knife designs, and taking classes to expand my knowledge and skill.
