Woodworking and Operations
The short answer is, I build stuff. For the store, for customers, for our home. I live my life trying to solve one puzzle after another. This is why custom building and new designs are so energizing for me!
On the one hand, I love to get my hands dirty and bring life to the designs Jeni and our Design Assistants create. Whether it's restoring the old or creating the new, Restoring Piece was built on giving life to our creations!
On the other hand, someone's got to do the "fun" stuff like track inventory, do accounting and maintain a website. Since I am the one with the Business Degree from the University of Florida and MBA from Rollins College, we figured it was best if I handled that stuff and not kill the creative vibe. So after a long day of spreadsheets, it's back to the woodshop!
I am a Tuscaloosa native furthering my education with a bachelor degrees in business and public relations. I have always been drawn to expressing myself through art.
My first restoration project was an 1800s bedroom set including a bed, dresser and vanity. It would have been much easier if I had known about Chalk Paint and how to use it!
So, in my spare timeI love to hunt, fish, sketch, paint, play guitar and write music. When I was youngerI was forced to take piano, but never really fell in lovelike I did with guitar. As a teenager I picked up the guitar and have never put it down! I find my happy place when I am playing music or working on an art piece.
I am blessed to have the opportunity to explore and play with the creative desires God put into my heart 22 years ago when I walk through those red doors at Restoring Piece. Not only that, but I get to work alongside wonderful people who love our Creator and His children as much as I do! So just know that you are in great hands when you stop by!
Some things about me: I am in my third year of studying Communication at the University of Alabama. I was raised about an hour away by my parents in a small town near Birmingham called Clay, Alabama. In my free time you can find me taking hikes with my German Shepherd Lola or painting canvases and thrift store finds while listening to soulful music.
I am looking forward to learning about & helping you with your next project!
