As a teaching artist, one of the great joys of my path is the chance to share my love of metalsmithing with others. Come take a class with me!

I offer beginner, intermediate, and specialty classes at several renowned art centers in the Seattle area (and sometimes further afield, too). I also occasionally offer private lessons from my studio in Pioneer Square.
