I graduated from Okaloosa Technical College in 2018 with a certificate in Welding Technology. I am certified in stick, mig, and tig welding processes along with various torch cutting applications. Unlike most welders, I didn't want to pursue a career in the traditional sense of pipe welding, construction, or even underwater. I wanted to make art, so starting Jan 2019, I started my business, The Arc Room creating artistic metal work using a variety of mediums.
When I'm not working, I enjoy cooking, good bourbon, and watching survival shows.
I create art out of metal using a combination of welding, torch cutting, and forging. My art is varied across the board and has a continuous aged/distressed look. I specialize in patriotic distressed flags, artistic blacksmithing, and other miscellaneous pieces. I am taking formal blacksmithing classes to learn the fundamentals and hopefully begin bladesmithing towards the end of the 2019 year!
