Learning the Art of Lutherie

Growing up, I spent a good amount of my time in two places at my parents’ home: the kitchen and the basement workshop. My parents were equally patient with me as I learned to create things to eat (notice I did not say they were edible) and create things out of wood (the number of “pasta makers,” “boxes,” and other inventions that I made would fill a small room). I can proudly say now that I have successfully mastered the basic crafts of cooking and woodworking, although both continue to be a source of continual learning and enjoyment for me.

My father is a hobbyist luthier, and has built 8 wonderful guitars, including the classical that I currently play (an incredibly well balanced and beautiful rosewood and spruce guitar). I was fortunate enough to learn both guitar playing and guitar construction under his patient tutelage (his patience is a continual source of wonderment to me as I am an incredibly stubborn person) prior to attending the University of Western Ontario for my undergraduate degree.

I have moved my small workshop around with me over the past several years, and have built a few guitars along the way. In 2016, I was fortunate enough to move into my own home with space to accommodate a permanent workspace.
