While going through old photographs, I came across this one. Dad and me, circa 1986. This photo makes me laugh because there are about 10-12 interior design disasters in this one photograph. I mean wood paneling? And it doesn’t even look like nice wood. It could possibly be just cardboard for all I know. The 80s were weird.


But this photo still kind of represents the two of us still today. We’re still hanging out. We’re still working together. The only thing different is that if we tried this pose again today, I would crush him.


Twenty-five years after this picture, these guys started American Workshop.
