I grew up in Northern Wisconsin, and have always enjoyed the natural wonders of the world. I went through a 3-year apprenticeship under Master Goldsmith Ulf Masters on the island of St. Thomas U.S.V.I. During this apprenticeship, I was educated in old-world hand fabrication techniques that I use to this day in creation and repair of custom jewelry. I moved back to Wisconsin, and worked in the jewelry industry for five years before my employment with Wickersham Jewelry in 2002. I have worked in every Wickersham Jewelry location before becoming manager of our newest location in Rhinelander. In my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, and spending time outdoors.
