Before starting his own business in 2005, he worked as tree surgeon for Acorn ArborCare.

His work is a mixture of life studies and works of fantasy. He aims to give each piece he creates a narrative, and he loves the fact that something beautiful can be produced using this potentially violent and destructive machine.
