He strives to create pieces that are both well-made and accessible, and to engage people in deeper conversation about the objects that occupy their daily lives.  Present in his work is a focus on creating timeless and functional pieces that endure for generations.

A Priori is a fully functional sideboard that is also a conceptual exploration of lines, planes, and negative spaces.  Its integrated storage complements the showcase-like voids.  Its form is intended to provoke the user’s spatial awareness while fostering a greater appreciation for everyday objects.
