I am a firefighter and artist blacksmith. This site is a sounding board for my obsession, that being ironwork. I started smithing in 2004 and haven't looked back. I was lucky enough to attain a work visa after college and traveled across the pond to Europe to work as a journeyman smith. I worked in the shops of Andrew Rowe in Wales, Terry Clark in England and Uri Hofi in Israel. I now run a small shop here in Texas with the intent on creating beautiful work.
