Born in Akron Colorado, but raised in Sheridan Wyoming, I am from a family of Educators and Musicians being the oldest of five children. Having studied Piano and Clarinet, I graduated from Sheridan High in 1979. I later went to Casper College where I studied as a voice major. Later, I met Rich Schell and we have collaborated together since 1987 sharing visions and determining the direction Rich Designs has become.
In 2001 we opened the doors of I Saw it First. Now, ten years later, the consignment store is stronger than ever and more successful than we could have imagined.
