I'm the one in the nice Osh-Kosh overalls, in front of my very stylish Dad.

I grew up in rural upstate New York, about 40 miles from Syracuse. Nature is a big part of my life. Family is a big part of my life. This isn't my whole family. I have FIVE brothers, bless my mother.
I started designing and building when I was 8. My treeforts were elaborate constructions spanning hundreds of feet (in my mind ... ) I started drafting in 9th grade, later attended the school of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell University for 2 years, and then got a BA at Umass Amherst in English. See my resume for a bit of my work experience.
I live in Springfield, MA with my lovely wife Kendra - we were married on August 13, 2005. Our only child so far is Freya, a 3 year old schauzer mix. It's a great life.
