I offer a variety of educational services revolved around private, commission, and group type work. Please contact me for scheduling, locations, and rates.

I am based in Southern California, but available for both domestic and international travel.

Private and Commission


I offer 1 on 1 private work for the creation, development, styling, and maintenance of both coniferous and deciduous material.

A specific project in mind, but no time to schedule a workday? I offer commission based services with pick up and delivery as well.


Group workshops are great learning opportunities not only to receive direction and work on your own tree, but to learn from material brought by other participants.

Recommended workshop size 4-7 people.

Study Groups

Classes are quite adaptable and range from large (7-10 people) group size discussion on a topic to study group configuration, 4-6 people, where we can be more hands on and accomplish more.

Please see my 2024 class calendar linked here:

Additional Services

Presentations and Talks

I regularly give programs for organizations, clubs, and my study groups discussing technique, development, philosophy, and all the bonsai encompasses. I have a concise, easily understood, and thorough teaching method. All of my students, clients, and groups I have worked for will vouch for this. Contact me regarding programs for your group.

Collection Management

I provide management as well as all educational services for both public and private collections. Tree boarding available on limited basis.
