Get to know me..

I was born in Bay Head, a seashore community in New Jersey.  While I have lived most of my life in Bloomington, Illinois, I try to spend at least part of each summer at the beach in Jersey.

I’m the youngest of three boys.  While my brothers were born just ten months apart, I came along (much to my parents’ surprise, I suspect) twelve years later.  So thanks to my loving Mom and Dad for their considerable generosity and infinite patience.

When I’m not designing, I’m kicking it with friends and family.  As the seasons change and opportunities arise, I surf and snowboard.  Most of my life I’ve played lacrosse and ice hockey, sports I hope will continue to have some role in my life.
