I am a Dutch-born American immigrant, currently based in New Mexico, US.

Since earning a BFA in Jewelry & Metalsmithing at Massachusetts College

of Art & Design in 2016, I have worked professionally as a woodworker and as a woodworking educator for children

and young adults.

After an impactful trip to New Mexico in 2018, I decided to invest in a small, unfinished adobe home and the surrounding lot --- with the dream of someday creating a sometimes-studio, a "little castle" in The Land of Enchantment.


I moved from Massachusetts to New Mexico with my partner and my tabby cat in the summer of 2021.
