It all started when...

Trained as a chef at Johnson & Wales University, I learned

ice carving working under Chef George O’Palenick. After Graduating in 1992 I competed professionally on the N.I.C.A competition circuit culminating in a silver metal at the 1998 Ice art world championships in fairbanks alaska. During that same time period I joined “Fear no ice”, the coolest ice carving company on the planet; look for them on my links page.

    In 1998 I also married the love of my life Pam. Together we have been blessed with two amazing boys Jack and Ryan.

    In 2000 I met Josh Lord of Lord’s tree service in Phoenixville Pa. With Josh’s help I tried my hand at woodcarving at his Christmas tree lot in Wayne Pa.

    Soon after I met Brian and Jen Ruth, Owners and Operators of “Masters of the Chainsaw”. Brian is one of the most talented carvers in the business. With out his guidance and Jen’s encouragement, I would not be the caver I am today.

    Of all my accomplishments I am most proud to have been inducted into “The Masters of The Chainsaw” Team. 

    A Special heart felt thank you to Brian and Jen Ruth
