I was taught pottery by my artist mother who ran a successful pottery in Maine. My grandfather, a third generation blacksmith, taught me blacksmithing. College taught me engineering and I was a successful mechanical engineer until my industry was a victim of the US shift to a services based economy and away from industry. I left engineering and entered the field of real estate where I was successful as a buyer of real estate and as an insurance broker. I am now back to my childhood love of pottery and metals. I own and operate a small pottery and forge deep in the redwoods on the banks of the Noyo River on the Mendocino Coast in California and I manage my real estate.
