Originally from the North Fork of Long Island, our dreams and passions lead us to Cape Cod, MA. There, Ken was able to start his own boatbuilding company and I was able to fully bask in my new role as a mama to a beautiful daughter, Josie.


After 2 years on the Cape, we were given a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity (stay tuned for all the deets), on the beautiful seacoast of Maine, where we currently reside. Being that Ken is a wooden boatbuilder, it’s a given that he is an extreme wood enthusiast and has always saved scraps of wood from all the boats he’s worked on. As an environmentalist myself, I knew we could put those scraps to good use instead of their destined home at the dump or in a fire pit. Wooden boats to wooden jewelry, Salty Grain launched.
