Growing up in Brooklyn, I was very fortunate. I played the trumpet for 12 years, I was in all my school bands and orchestras, and participated in all the school plays. Before going to college I was captain of the Trude Heller Dancers in New York City, when Trudes was the spot to be. Till this day I love music, and I always wished to be under the lights. However, I soon realized that my singing voice wasn’t going to cut it. Despite my lack of vocal chords as some might say, my wish came true years later when Display Designs came into existence.
However, getting under the lights wasn’t an easy road. I served a 5 year apprenticeship in the window apparel trade, and graduated to become a top end Ladies & Mens NYC window trimmer with an apprentice of my own. Because of the work I did, I shortly received calls from various manufactures to display their products at trades shows.
