Born in Minnesota. Loved the snow. Moved to Maryland for two years. Parent’s divorced and moved back to Minnesota. Grew up a little, started liking girls, started writing. Stopped wearing baggy pants. Spent two weeks in Cuba, got into college, moved to Philly, wasted a year, got into philosophy and became an intellectual. Got my heart broken, fell in love with design. Finally found some purpose. Became obsessed with my work, realized the potential. Time to make it happen.
