The Lamare River and Villemagne l'Argentiere where I built my first classical guitar

During the summer of 2005, near the banks of the Lamare River in southern France, I built my first classical guitar under the guidance of luthier Thomas Knatt. For me it was not only the discovery of an amazing craft, but also of a passionate yet immense challenge I have since embraced.

 

Over the years I have deepened my understandings of tonewood, honed my handtool skills, and refined my process of handcrafting visually and acoustically beautiful classical and nylon string guitars. To be ever learning, ever striving is my personal goal and I am deeply grateful to pursue it through this traditional art, and to share it with you.
