Background Information

I proudly served my country for almost 22 years, having flown combat aircraft in both the US Navy and the Air Force.  I retired from the Air Force after four tours of duty in Iraq.

After retiring from the Air Force I held several jobs while searching for my true civilian calling.  Having always loved working with my hands and making things for other people, I discovered that my longtime love of knives and blades would become my true passion of bladesmithing.

In addition to making custom knives and leather sheaths, I live on a farm in the mountains of North East Tennessee, where I raise beef cattle and honeybees.

My Makers Mark incorporates my name with the cattle brand that my family has used for generations.
