Multidisciplinary Designer

Member since August 28, 2007

I grew up in the midwest. Passing time was building forts in the woods or taking apart tools and electronics and putting them back together.

In 1995 I went to school at the School of the Art Institue in Chicago for a BFA. No major, but I covered most departments: sculpture, ceramics, drawing, video, electronics and finally fashion, where I put them all together in to neon dresses and other wearable architectural enginering projects.

In 2001 I moved to NYC to work for Jhane Barnes designing fashions, furniture, showrooms, a new brand image for a younger mens line and eventually a branded shop inside Sak's Fifth Avenue.

In 2005 I set out for independent creation founding Acolyte, a multidisciplinary design firm. While providing design management and strategy over the next year the firm grew a few partners.

Together with partners Matt Tyson and Pablo Souto we formed a new company in 2007, called EcoSystems. We provide some of the most innovative green furniture products available to businesses and institutions. Acolyte still lives under the hood of EcoSystems and is proving its value to developing innovation in this green market.
