Skizum Founder – A Brief Background

flux pic

Born in 1968, I grew up in a tri-racial (Black, Native American, White) upwardly mobile family in the industrial Midwest; evolving from the inner city ghetto of Buffalo, NY to the upper middle class suburbs of Detroit, MI with 7 stops in between. I earned degrees in engineering and art from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) and moved on to work for a well respected design consultancy in New York City in 1993. During my early professional years, I was involved in many innovative and inventive projects within the fields of product, furniture, interior, graphic, and content design. By 1997, I was involved in event conceptualization and production. In 2002, I set up my European center of operations in Berlin, Germany. I now travel between my bases in the US and Europe collaborating on various projects and events.

This wide ranging experience has enabled me with a uniquely broad perspective from which to objectively observe, analyze, innovate and problem solve. My endeavors range from project/product strategic concept development through production/manufacture to implementation & marketing across a wide variety of professional disciplines. In plain language; I help create, develop and implement win-win scenarios based on sound ideas.
