Originally from upstate NY, Seth knew from a young age that he wanted to make things. He figured that to build a house one must start at the bottom, literally, so he found a job working for a mason building block foundations and brick chimneys on Nantucket Island. From there he learned carpentry and tile setting in the Boston area where he enjoyed working on some great old buildings. Moving back to upstate NY he continued working as a carpenter and also learned residential wiring and plumbing. His goal was to have a hand in every trade. While single handedly renovating the home of a designer for the Steuben Glass factory he was hired to prototype exhibitry for the Corning Museum of Glass which was undergoing a huge renovation. His success turned into a full time job where he continued to expand his skills to include metalworking, glass blowing and woodturning. Seth decided to follow his then girlfriend (now his wife, Mary Jo) out west as she had enrolled in a PhD program in Palo Alto. While planning their move he found Michael Meyer’s logo online, really liked the color, and emailed Michael his resume. Michael called him the next day.
