Educator. Empowerer. Craftsman.

My mission is to empower & inspire others by teaching globally-informed drystone masonry, to share images of stonework, and to leave a legacy of stone installations. I leave a mark on history by helping others make theirs.

“Thanks for a great lesson and engaged activity this morning. The kids really enjoyed their first day with you. Looking forward to having you here tomorrow!”

“The balance of theory and practice was perfect! The workshop was very engaging from start to finish and was a good value for the cost and time.”

“The notecards are stunning images of your stonework, and the textured paper is perfect for them.”

“Joe did a great job re-using our existing stone, and his choice of new capstones made for a beautiful sitting wall. Our whole family enjoys it.”
