I dream and I build things.

I have built tables, desks, shelves, gardens. My passion is woodworking with reclaimed materials. I hope to build more. Working on a workspace and steady supply of wood and storage. I also like to craft props for cosplays and other costume materials. Working with ones hands to create is one of the most noble pursuits and here is a collection of my works pursuing that ideal.

Back in college, my best friend and I built an Aquaponic Farm in our backyard, constructed from a recycled IBC tote, pvc piping, plastic totes, water and air pumps, hundreds of pounds of clay pebbles and river rock, plants and a whole lot of fish.
