About the artist:

I was born in Italy and immigrated to Canada at a very young age. I spent my youth in Cobourg, along the northern shores of Lake Ontario. After finishing my Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Toronto, I moved to Peterborough and worked for many years as a Professional Engineer and Senior Manager in the Power industry.

Although I had a very demanding business career, I found time to explore and develop my interest in working with wood. My early exposure to wood working started with finish carpentry and cabinet making with my father. In the 1990s, my interest then led to creating modern and classical furniture. This progression led me to joining the Kawartha Woodturners Guild (KWG) in 1997 where I quickly found my true passion was woodturning. I joined the Guild executive and became President of the Guild in 2001, continuing to serve on the executive for over 10 years, where I helped to promote the Guild and develop woodturning in the community. I am currently serving on the KWG executive as director of programming. I am now fully focusing my efforts in the pursuit of woodturning, participating in a few shows each year, displaying my work at various galleries, demonstrating for woodturning guilds, and teaching woodturning.
