I was a part of 'Corporate America' living and working in New Jersey, until 9/11 changed my whole outlook about what I wanted to accomplish with my life. My wife and I loved Vermont, and we constantly discussed how to make a living here. My good friend Paul is a antler artist and craftsmen. As I stood in his shop fascinated by his work, a bell went off in my head and I decided I wanted to make art work out of antlers. I've been making these pieces from naturally shed antlers since 2007.
