Without going into too much detail, I myself was made in Michigan and born during the summer of 1976 in the small town of Greenville. As my father enlisted in the United States Army soon after my birth, I cannot lay claim to being raised here in Michigan, but rather, throughout the United States as an Army brat as we -- like most military families -- were perpetually relocated.
Somehow, we all ended up back here in Michigan, where we currently reside, happily.
I am proud to be a part of Michigan and to be able to represent it as both an aspiring artist and as a business owner. Additionally, in a world of rising seawater, I find comfort in being surrounded by large lakes of freshwater, and as such consider it a premium destination for both tourists and prospective residents alike.
I am also ready to see if I can somehow give back to this state which I feel has given so much to me.
starbeam.one is first Michigan-made, and its initial focus -- and perhaps even ultimate focus -- is to attract and feature the best of Michigan's traditional artists and represent their products here in a digital way.
