Bruce Sienkowski is a graduate of Kendall College of Art & Design. He became interested in woodworking at a young age, and that interest led him to a successful career in product design and development. He believes that "... successful design is a result of collaboration between all who are invested in the outcome. Design is for the user, and for industry; if either is not at the table then the solution is weak". All perspectives must be considered to have a remarkable product.
