He is based just outside of Winnipeg, Manitoba and though he originally started out training as a classical Guitarist he started making instruments in 1980 after studying luthiery under Bozo Podunavac. He has since done advanced luthiery courses and has also lectured internationally in various forms of instrument building. Guitars are still the main instrument but he has made all sorts of fretted chordophone including some of the the more obscure latin folk instruments. Since 2008 though Ukuleles have increasingly become part of his catalogue. He makes all standard scales of Ukulele from Sopranino, (Mini), to Baritone, and also makes Resonators, Pineapples, Taropatches, (but I've not seen a Lili'u or a Tiple Ukulele), Banjoleles and Uke Basses in a variety of woods and finish levels mainly on commission.

In addition to his more professional looking models I have also seen Cigar Box Ukuleles and Cocoleles made by him, plus a number of more experiments models like double necks and square neck Weisenborn Ukuleles. He doesn't have a headstock logo as such but he does use a distinctive offset shape to the crown of the Ukulele, and he usually puts some kind of little inlaid motif at the top of the headstock too.
