Twenty years of professional experience in the industry served to make a seamless transition to Instructor in CCET’s Furniture Making Program in 1999; but my preparation, as it turned out, began long before, my formative years influenced by craftsmen who relied on patience, diligence, refined skills and pride in their work, rather than self-promotion, to establish their reputation. Instilling similar work ethics be just as valuable as the technical skills that Trainees acquire.
