I’ve been with Carter Cutlery since June 2016. I entered the Muteki apprenticeship program immediately after
graduating with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Western Michigan University.
My love of knives began at a very young age, and I have been making knives on my own since high
school. I began to enjoy cooking while at university, and my focus shifted to kitchen knives,
specifically my signature European style chef’s knife. I take this one step farther in our Zen series
of knives. The Zen series was born out of my longstanding desire to make integral kitchen knives.
I aim to combine my personal experience, education, and Murray’s wealth of knowledge to produce
the finest blades I can muster.
When not in the shop, you’ll find me outside either hiking or playing Ultimate Frisbee. I
still love to further my education with a continued interest in mathematics and physics. And
if you find me cooking in the kitchen, I’ll surely be working to perfect my strawberry and cream
cheese stuffed French toast recipe!
