I am a native Chicagoan with a lifelong passion for Design. I've been successfully involved in a number of design industries including Industrial, Lighting, and Furniture, receiving such recognition as the IDSA IDEA, Dwell, Interior Design Best Of Year, and ICFF Studio Awards.

My work experience includes designing for companies such as Apple, Bretford, LBL Lighting, Tech Lighting, and Holly Hunt, as well as founding the Chicago design company Lake + Wells.

As the son of a tool-and-die maker, I have spent my whole life around America's midwestern industrial roots. Manufacturing, engineering, creativity, and problem-solving run deep in my blood. I try and achieve a congruity of art and science in everything I create.
