I am a luthier who makes and restores violins, guitars and mandolins.
My craft is informed by my love for playing these instruments. As a player, I know a musical instrument has both creative and utilitarian attributes. In order for an instrument to perform at its best, it must be attended to with an eye and ear to both its physical health and its playability. These aspects are often intertwined.
Working to bring a new or existing musical instrument into proper playing condition is what I do. I keep on hand a small inventory of new instruments for sale, as well as some vintage guitars and mandolins, and a few older violins. I am also available for custom work, bow rehairing and repairs, and instrument restorations and repairs.
