Looking back at my childhood, there's little surprise that I wound up an industrial designer. I've been drawing since I could first hold a crayon, and while my choice of drawing instruments has matured, my creativity remains just as vivid.
I attended college at the University of Cincinnati's prestigious College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning (DAAP). Originally majoring in Architecture, by the end of my first quarter, I discovered that I was way more interested in designing chairs for my buildings than drafting out floor plans. I switched to Industrial Design and never looked back.
I've spent most of my career in the world of consulting, founding my own design consulting practice in 2004. The world around me is an infinite source of inspiration, and I regularly draw influences from nature, graffiti, and fond memories of mid-century modern furniture in my grandparents' home. I've even been known to take pictures of manhole covers because I like the geometry!
I consider myself very fortunate to have discovered my calling in life as a furniture designer. My style is very modern, and I love turning simple forms into something beautiful.
