His background in fine arts, teaching, and business over nearly two decades makes him uniquely qualified to communicate ideas, design pieces, and execute the work in a professional manner. A quality product and great experience are paramount to his philosophy.
Jonathan's serious love for creating began in high school. This passion took him to Syracuse University where he earned a BFA in Fine Arts and would teach Drawing at the University for the next three years. While teaching, he also worked at a custom cabinet shop that would spark a passion for woodworking.
After 10 years of working in custom furniture and cabinet shops in New York and North Carolina, the native Rhode Islander completed training at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship and opened his business in Newport, RI in 2012. While designing and building furniture in his local shop, he also teaches at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine and has an online course for craftsy.com, “Cabinet Case Construction,” that debuted in 2015.
