"I grew up in Iowa on the same farm as my father and grandfather. Watching my father work with his hands to mend, invent, and build. I learned to work with my hands at a very young age. When I was twelve I built my first stool and for my birthday my parents gave me a small workshop of my own. I have been making ever since."
