Works and lives in the USA, has a true passion for the art of hand engraving. His life’s work has centered around hand craftsmanship - and jewelry. From a retail store, to sales, to gemstone setting, to engraving, to intricate metal work and more, these are his main passions. Over the years he has become a skilled goldsmith and silversmith.
