I usually tell people I am a Designer, but that really doesn't say what I actually do. What I really do is convince people of the truthfulness of a particular product design, then I work very hard to make that product and the people surrounding it grow and become successful.
Love the People - Love the Product - Love the Process

We had thousands of simple backpacks and messenger bags which had been rejected by the retailer for a cosmetic blemish in the fabric. We worked with a local Boy Scout Troop to remove all the labels as stipulated by the brand and then they were filled with daily necessities and distributed to victims of the 2004 Tsunami. The retailer had originally requested that all the products be destroyed.
It was a true blessing to be able to turn our small disaster into something that could help the victims of a much more real disaster.
