After attending U. of Manitoba for Interior Design, I had a great job for a year and then went off to Europe for 3 months. Somehow I ended up in NY but that's a long story. I designed corporate interiors for 10 years and transitioned into designing jewelry. I've had my own company since 1994 creating contemporary jewelry. I've been in Brooklyn for the last three years and it's a great place to be since so many creative people have gathered here.
