Back for “Good”

I have been dormant since July of 2012 but, no more! I have been overly busy since that time. I Finished a Masters in Architectural Engineering at IIT, Co-founded The 3D Printer Experience, helped launch a hacker space SSH:Chicago, helped build an urban farm, traveled, taught and, found love. All of those adventures and projects coming soon starting with a photo that I took before going dormant.


Looking forward to what’s to come for 2014!


Porsche A No GO!

Entered the Porsche and Fast Company Magazine competition and was not selected as one of the top 25, but I did design a cool chair inspired by Porsche!  Fast Company is one of the best magazines out there that combines business and design. Here are links to the top 25 and you can decide for yourself who the winner should be?  My favorite is probably the bicycle and the backpack, maybe they would like to park at the Bike Oasis.

Paper Toys for Good!

Please help out a great organization that I have admired for a long time, One Tail at a Time.  They are a no kill dog shelter, that does many great things for the pups in Chicago.  Here is a paper pup that I designed for them and for the love of my dog, Jada.  

Click on any of the images above to help One Tail at a Time and receive your paper pup!

Coming Soon!

New projects and more voting coming soon!  I have been busy working on many projects and a new business, so there has not been to much action since Valentines Day. The next project that will require voting will be starting March 29th, a California modern house with a twist.

The new business is 26LAB, we are trying to grow it into a collaborative / maker / education space for the community in the near south side of Chicago. Much more coming soon!  If you are interested please send me an email, we are trying to grow our community of followers and supporters.

You can now also follow on Twitter @26LAB and @DS26.


to my Portfolio!

I am an Architecture Professional currently working on a Masters in Architectural Engineering at IIT.  I also run a non-for-profit 26LAB; that teaches Architecture, Engineering, and Construction to k-12 students (adults see Education tab).  We are also working on local community based projects in Chicago through 26LAB.  I am currently interested in all things design; related to Sustainability, BIM, Energy Modeling, Digital Fabrication, and Design Education. Finally DS26SHOP is a place that keeps my design juices flowing.

More coming soon!  Pardon the Construction.
