Hi everyone!

I entered the SHARK TANK in October and ABC is finally airing my episode on April 1st at 8pm/7pm central on ABC! I pitched the Sharks in hope of securing capital for my garage start-up. It was fun and terrifying!!

See the preview video at

Also, I’ll be promoting LUMBERJOCKS at the American Society of Furniture Designers Annual Dinner where I’ll be the keynote speaker on April 4th.

All my best,


Mod Mom Furniture

cool. I watched it on friday night and the one product they liked but did not give any money to was an “extreme pogo stick”. They liked the fact that it stood out from other pogo stick’s and thought it should not be made into a mass marketed product.
I hope that does happen with you, your stuff looks really cool.
Actually you can tell us if they gave you money cant you? lol
