In 1983, as a 16yr old cabinet maker's apprentice, I have Thomas Bennett of Millfied, Ohio to thank for sharing his hard earned knowledge of the craft. Work with many others in a variety of production settings around the US plus 3yrs of study and 4yrs employment at CU Boulder's College of Arch. and Planning ultimately forged a uniquely skilled journeyman. Since the "Great recession of 2008", I'm typically hired as a web developer, programmer and marketing consultant.
