I'm a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island and am presently a Senior Footwear Designer at L.L.Bean in Freeport, Maine. Prior to this I was Virtual/3D Design Manager and Advanced Concepts Senior Designer for The Timberland Company in Stratham, New Hampshire.
Upon graduation I interned at Little- Brown Book Publishers in Boston, Massachusetts. I then landed a position as a Technical Illustrator for Foster-Miller, Inc. in Waltham, Massachusetts. During this time I stayed creatively engaged by doing various freelance design work for companies such as Reebok, Arthur D. Little and Cyrk.
I entered the world of footwear design as a freelancer for The Stride Ride Company in Lexington, Massachusetts. This became my full time focus a short time later. I made my way north 2 years later to work on Mens and Kids product for G.H. Bass & Co. in South Portland, Maine.
I grew up in New York City and now make my home in Portland, Maine with my wife Kelly and our two girls Maya and Blake.
