Kitsch-in…

Somewhere in an 1850’s farmhouse in GHent, NY.

The Kitsch-in, is an experiment in Traditional, industrial, and Craftsman styling. Rather than write out a long winded blog, I will let the pictures and description tell the story…

NY_Rhinebeck Pilates

Spring is a wonderful time in NY, the weather warms up, the flowers bloom…and stuff gets built.

Rhinebeck is an adorable hamlet on the Hudson river about an hour and a half north of the city, it features colonial and gothic architecture, cute, bustling shops and an amazing Pilates studio.

I had the privilege of building the front desk for said amazing studio, in this charmed hamlet. It started with locally sourced, spalted Maple that was beautifully figured and had dark lines of “spalting”. Then, I added some birch Plywood to match the existing furniture. The final step was creating a “charging station” where students could leave their cell phones, while escaping into the Pilates peace of mind.

PHX Start Up Week

Start Uprising…

I spent this week in a very different way than most, at a business conference focusing on Start Ups. Being a carpenter for most of my life, this is strange new territory… But, as a small business owner it was insightful and inspiring. Admitting you do not know or understand things can be difficult, but the administrators and other attendees were open, honest and understanding of my slightly different place in the ecosystem. I learned that many of the challenges I face are universal to most in the business community, and that understanding those challenges are the first step in conquering them. I learned authenticity, storytelling and connection are near universal. I learned lots of new language, ideas and concepts and met many wonderful, helpful and kind people.

I would Like to thank APS and Airbnb for my room for the week, Chase,Galvanize, Grand Canyon University, Arizona Science Center, The Quad, and ASU for hosting, as well as all the administrators, speakers and attendees for a truly profound experience, that will affect the way I see Business for years to come.phx-start-up-week-ic-furniture
