Do you feel like you were filling a void in the market?
Yes, I ultimately started designing the decorative corner brackets (Makers Hardware) because I couldn’t find anything like it.
You moved from LA further up north, did that make you feel like you had to start from scratch?
I spent a good year finding my local vendors and clients in LA and had built a great network by the time I left. I definitely had to start over in terms of building a network of clients and vendors when we moved up north.
You recently had a baby boy, obviously that turns ones world upside down and opens up a whole new dimension. How has that affected your work?
It’s given me even more of a desire to keep creating. It’s really important for me that my son sees me creating and making things.
