The roots of my love for welding first dug in when I was a millwright apprentice for Chrysler. I struck my first arc in November of 2002, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I was very fortunate to be in a situation where I could learn from Journeymen who had decades of experience in all sorts of welding, and who were more than willing to share their knowledge with me. From tig welding tool steels to stick welding in structural applications and using a mig welder for general fabrication, not to mention everything in between, I’ve been able to develop and hone my skills in a variety of processes and settings. I currently hold a variety of tig and stick welding certifications, and I test for additional qualifications routinely.
Brown Dog Welding is the product of my passion. What began as my profession has become something much more. It is an evolving entity as I continue to grow as a metal worker and as an artist. Welding, when done right, is an art form unto itself, and I enjoy challenging myself to raise the bar.
