When I was 11 years old, I built a brick forge in my backyard and took my first steps into the exciting world of bladesmithing. What started as a pile of bricks, a stack of firewood, and a small piece of scrap metal quickly became my favorite hobby, and a lifelong passion. I’m now 23, and have been bladesmithing for more than half my life.
I specialize in kitchen knives, but have made everything from swords to pocket knives. I strive for constant improvement and enjoy builds that stretch my skill set since ultimately its the challenging projects that help me explore the craft the most.
I graduated from UCLA with a masters degree in mechanical engineering in 2019 and am currently working in northern California as a mechanical design engineer. Although I don’t expect knife making to ever be my full time profession, I hope to keep it as a creative outlet for the rest of my life.
