I was born in Exeter and lived there until I moved to Virginia in the US of A.  Spent another seven years there before moving to France at the age of 13, with no knowledge of the French language.  Living in Brittany was a lot of fun!  It was here where I decided to embark on a career in carpentry and follow in my family’s footsteps.  My grandfather and four of my uncles all worked with wood.  Before moving to Carpenter Oak, I completed 2 years basic training and 2 years advanced carpentry training with the Compagnon Du Devoir in Rennes.
