Don was born to his mother in 1973. He asked his dad for a camera when he was 6, and Santa brought this and left it under the Christmas tree. “Art” ensued. He started his higher education at a community college in Illinois, transferred to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, then on to Academy of Art in San Francisco, where he completed his Bachelors Degree in Photo Illustration. He’s made stuff for Design Within Reach, Dirty Donny and SXSW winners The Fabric Magazine.
