Born and raised in Southeast Michigan, I realized at a young age being creative and using my hands to build was a passion. I attended College for Creative Studies in Detroit. A true gift, this school taught me to be decisive and passionate about what I love, design and art. I was offered a position at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, Missouri. Which was another turning point, this cultured little secret of a city gave me a jumping off point to work with some of the most talented people I know.
I have been lucky to meet and work with incredible people, which has led to me here, to the most wonderful city on earth, New York City. I have a love for my projects, I enjoy the most simple of inspirations, nature, my city surroundings, my friends, these things make me who I am and help me to create.
