I am a furniture designer who has developed from a background in woodworking and general construction. I am a Marxist; I’m interested in the possibilities of unalienated labor through pushing the worker control of my design, material, tools, method and direct exchange of my product to their limit within a market of commodities. I’m influenced by Enzo Mari, Clara Porset, Shiro Kuramata, and Wharton Esherick.
