In July 2010, I started Wyeth Designs to showcase and promote my line of furniture and jewelry. My pieces display clean, minimalist lines reflecting my love of Japanese architecture and Scandinavian furniture design. I also try to incorporate natural elements such as stones, grass, and water into my pieces whenever possible. Structural elements such as table legs become canvases and showcases for these natural elements.
Wyeth Designs was started to showcase my work as a furniture designer.
I began woodworking early in life while working for a contractor throughout high school and college. Furniture building, however, was never part of my life plan. During college, I studied architecture but eventually chose to pursue a career in medicine. During my four years in medical school at the University of Chicago, when I was not studying or in the hospital, I was in my makeshift workshop in my garage. Applying the knowledge I had garnered from my years in construction, I began to teach myself the basics of furniture design and construction. Graduating from medical school in June of 2009, I started work as an emergency room physician in downtown Chicago's Northwestern Memorial Hospital. I continued to dedicate much of my free time outside the hospital to pursuing furniture design and construction.
I continue to balance my time between working in a small community emergency department in San Ramon, CA and building furniture out of my garage in Danville, CA.
