Growing up in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St.Paul, Minnesota, I discovered watchmaking after studying machine design and working as a draftsman. I began my watchmaking career in 1999, soon relocating to Boston, working with several luxury watch dealers and workshops. While working with three award-winning master watchmakers, I developed a love for the complex art of fabricating parts and repairing watches dismissed by other watchmakers.
In 2007 I attended the WOSTEP school in Neuchatel, Switzerland for the Refresher Course, and was granted the title “Swiss Watchmaker” by the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry. Upon my return, I became the Technical Coordinator for Quality Control at Breitling USA, finishing with leadership of the first ETA 7750 sequential repair facility in Breitling's worldwide after-sales network.
Since 2010 I have worked directly for watch owners and jewelers.
