I have a very distinct memory of watching my dad create the prototype for the product he sold. It was a back scratcher with a golfing glove as the scratcher. He crafted the prototype from modeling clay in our living room, and then went on to sell thousands of them through large retailers. So when I came up with the idea to do Taylor Lee Design on the side, they were really supportive.

About Us

This blog was started in 2011 in my junior year AP Comp class. I’ve taken breaks. I’ve changed the format and purpose. I’ve gotten lost a time or two along the way. But I’ll always find my way back.
