About 

I like to think of myself as a universal creative problem solver. Quite simply, I love to design. I absolute heart is toward designing pieces to be integrated into the built environment; Relevant pieces that enhance the way of life for all living in a regions context. I am also a graphic designer have used my skills to produce works for many organizations and musicians in the Metro-Detroit Area. I have freelanced as an interior space designer for private residences and places of worship. I'm am a connoisseur of culture. I love diving into the ambiance of a foreign culture. As a result I have learned a few languages. I've been speaking Italian for 3 years, I speak novice Spanish, and I recently started learning Chinese. I am a self-taught musician playing the guitar and piano as well as singing. I guess a Renaissance Man of sorts.
