Matt grew up in Ojai, CA and has been woodworking on and off for over 20 years in between a long career as a US Marine and owning traditional businesses. Now, focused full time on creating custom wood dreams, he has instilled his passion for the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete into his craftsmanship while incorporating a harmonious combination of stones, crystals, and wood. He says, “In my life and work, I follow my heart by being my authentic self, and I instill that awareness into each unique piece that I create and pass that energy on. I love to embrace nature’s supposed imperfections and teach the eyes and mind to view those as features of the piece.” He has been commissioned to build many interior/exterior structures, conversions/renovations/build outs, tables, benches, wall art, wine art, knives, and even pet furniture.
