Gray Skunk started out as an idea to blur lines between design disciplines. We share a mutual appreciation for the creative process and are inspired by designers outside the boundaries of our formal studies. Whether we're involved in product development, furniture design or architecture, we live for the chance to constantly reinvent ourselves as designers.
Our studio is conveniently located in beautiful downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
I've always enjoyed the process involved with the act of 'making stuff'. I turned that devotion into a Master's in Architecture which further developed the design related skill sets I've acquired over the past 15 years. It's quite empowering to be able to materialize ideas and concepts. I love what I do and I've been blessed to be able to devote (a considerable amount of) time and energy to Gray Skunk. This truly is my passion and I hope you can see it and feel it in all that we touch.
I also spend some quality time with my amazing family - a wonderful wife, a daughter, a son and a dog. I couldn't have made this dream and vision come true without their support and love - for that I am truly thankful. My partner in crime here at Gray Skunk is alright too.
In first grade, I wrote down that I wanted to be an Architect so I could draw buildings and take lunch breaks like my dad. Three decades later, it all came full circle (minus the lunch breaks).
While working on my graduate degree at the University of Utah, I had a great experience with Design Build Bluff designing and building a home for a family on the Navajo Reservation. During and after school, I worked as an intern at an architectural firm. I then moved on as a project designer with a vibrant design company in Salt Lake City. Finally, with the support of a great friend and business partner, Gray Skunk Inc. was created.
