This is a picture of me in my Colorado Yurt Company hat.
I grew-up in Hamilton, NY, the home of Colgate University, which is about 10 miles from Loomis Lair.
I went to Morrisville College (AAS-Mechanical Engineering Technology), Excelsior College (BS-Art and Design) and Rochester Institute of Technology (MFA- Industrial Design).
I have lived in Connecticut for 12 years now and for 10 years before that in Ithaca, NY. I have designed and fabricated Exhibits and Furniture for many years and I have more recently taught Industrial Design and Graphic Design at the college level. I have been involved with the historic restoration of two houses and I was also a founding Board Member and the Secretary of the City Point Historic District Neighborhood Association in New Haven, CT.
I have missed not living around the beautiful forests and fields of Central New York. I wanted to return to my roots in a place that I love and work toward achieving a more self-sustainable lifestyle. I am the founder, owner and operator of Loomis Lair Yurt Rentals, since March of 2010.
