A personal note: The 20th Anniversary


On May 1, 1993, I arrived in the great northwest to continue this fascinating

life with a different backdrop.  The years have been educational,

enlightening, and I hope, the prelude for the next 20.




The Thornhill Design Laboratory is gaining strength.  This week we can discuss the facilities questions that deserve more attention and will soon get it.


Our interim status has been supported by a co-working space in Culver City, meetings in Fremont/Seattle, with past events in Los Angeles, Maui, Miami and Pittsburgh.  This has all helped as we add New York, Charlotte and Detroit to the mix.


We have embraced libraries as an efficient meeting place, continued print production of our simple booklets through Office Depot Services, entered into a production agreement for a continuing monthly radio production with NPR, settled into an agreement for a space for a bookstore in North Carolina and will consider building a new studio on a remarkable plot near the water.


To review all of this, we have started negotiations with additional partners and will offer a facilities review in equal installments as a 4 part series.


1 The first will give a comprehensive facilities overview for the Lab. 

2 The second will introduce you to Todd Grain, founder of Starchild Investments, LLC.

3 and 4, will be based on information gathered between now and then


Along the way, we expect to work miracles with The Thornhill Design Laboratory.


If you are a property owner, architect, designer, or builder – stay in touch.  We will always need elements to shelter: (1) CATALOGUE, (2) The Thornhill Design Lab Salon / Radio, (3) Thornhill Digital Storytelling (TDS), (4) TDS NEWS / TDS NEWS Digital, (5) The Fashion Media Project, (6) Thornhill Design Lab Workshop, (7) Bookstore, Production & Learning Studio and (8) Hospitality.


I hope to see you at Fremont Abbey, another great facility
