My first mezuzot
A graduate of San Francisco State University, Cum Laude with a BA in Sociology and a minor in Metal Art, I learned about racism, genocide, and the ways in which societies function, while falling in love with the craft of metalsmithing. With the help of my supportive parents Mitch and Susan Golant and beloved teacher, Dawn Nakanishi, I began making mezuzah cases in 1993. Upon my graduation in 1996, I decided to pursue a career as a metalsmith, artist & educator.
