Christopher grew up in western Massachusetts and moved to the California Bay Area in the early 1990’s. He has worked in a number of fields, from positions as an aircraft electrician in the Navy and flight instrument mechanic for a commercial airline to jobs in technical editing and translation while living in Japan. Prior to enrolling in the fine woodworking program, his interests in woodworking involved a range of small-scale projects using primarily hand tools as well as classical guitar building. His goals while enrolled in the fine woodworking program are to learn and refine the specialized skills required for making fine furniture and begin developing a personal sensibility and style as a foundation for future work as a mature furniture maker.
