In pursuit of Watchmaking Perfection…
I began my watchmaking journey seven years ago, a natural progression stemming from my love of history, and background growing up in a machine shop. I started by skeletonizing ETA movements while simultaneously working through the British Horological Institute's distance learning program.
In 2013 I became captivated by the arcane art of engine-turning after reading George Daniels Watchmaking. For three years I practiced engine-turning and machining, slowly acquiring better equipment and increasing in skill. In 2016, I felt competent enough to create engine-turned watch dials for others. Most notably the master clock and watchmaker David Walter.
During this time the idea for the Infinity Series first emerged. In addition to creating dials for others I wanted to leave my own mark on American Horology. The Infinity Series is the manifestation of that goal. A watch that is simple, elegant, timeless, but contributes to the evolution of horology and engine-turning.
In addition to watchmaking I love to spend time with my wonderful wife and children. When I'm not watchmaking I work as a high school principal, and try to find ways to get machine shop skills back into the classroom. I've also spent many years teaching and have a B.A. from UCLA and an M.A. from CSUN both in history.
