Hello! I grew up near Seattle, lived in Texas, and now call Utah my home. I have a passion for woodturning, promotion, events and creating. It was only a matter of time before I built an online symposium! I helped the Utah Woodturning Symposium for several years, and have spent the last 5 years building the Woodturners Worldwide instagram page to a community of more than 130,000. That's what I want to do here. I want to build a global community of woodturners. For many, we'll never see some of the great woodturners of the world demonstrate. With today's technology, we can. Selfishly, I want to see many of them demonstrate. Building this event allows me to rub shoulders with some of the greats, and I'm hoping you can rub shoulders with them too. Reach out if you have any suggestions on how to make this an amazing symposium. Hope to see you there!
