I search New England for the best, reclaimed lumber. Each piece is handpicked with it’s own history and unique character. I have to see something within the wood. It speaks to me. I collect a variety of wood species because they all have their own strengths and charms, depending on the piece I’m creating.

MY NAME IS Marcus
I grew up in the rural mountains of Montego Bay, Jamaica, surrounded by creativity and resourcefulness. Extreme poverty was an integral part of the recipe that strengthened my passion to create.
When I found Nantucket at 19, I knew I found another magical place —one filled with unique people, breathtaking natural beauty, and the same resourcefulness and creativity as the island of my youth. Now I’m living the life of my dreams with my beautiful wife and our two young sons.
