What he uses
"I use Crepe Myrtle Wood, Paracord, Paper, Vintage Items, Paper Mache, Clay, Wire, Bone, Cigar Boxes, Spray Paint. I also do video and photography...my favorite medium would have to be Crepe Myrtle Wood for my staffs."
Why did you start making walking staffs?
"Well, i can't give you an exact reason exactly, except that it was an action I started performing that just felt like it needed to be done or was the right thing to do at the time. After completeing a few of my first staffs, I began to branch out. Buying a few more basic tools, advertising when ever I could (and still can), and making contact with a few people who might possibly be interested in carrying these fine handcrafted Crepe Myrtle Staffs in their store; led me to sell my first lot of 7 staffs and walking canes for a considerable amount it seemed at the time, as well as about 10 other sales to indviuals who I'd met and sold on the idea of why a Staff is so great."
