I am a fifth generation craftsman. Following in the footsteps of my great-grandfathers, who built churches in the American Southwest, I founded Keating Woodworks. Before coming to furniture making and design full-time I worked as a roofer, a motorcycle mechanic, and earned graduate degrees in Theology from Yale University and the University of Notre Dame. I now live and work with my wife and three children in a restored 19th century grocer in Colorado Springs. My work has been featured in American Craft, Architectural Digest, 5280, Design Sponge, Architectural Digest Germany, This Old House, Apartment Therapy and elsewhere. I was recently selected to create an installation of chairs (“Sit With Me”) at the Riverside Art Museum in conjunction with the Maloof Foundation to honor the 100th birthday of American designer and maker Sam Maloof. In 2015 I was honored as one of the top designers in Colorado. In 2018 I completed the interior restoration of Sacred Heart Church, a 1922 Thomas MacLaren designed, Spanish Mission style Catholic Church in Old Colorado City, Colorado.
