I am a Toy designer, for 20 years worked for Kenner/Hasbro including StarWars figures and space ships. After seeing children in church play with Star War figures, it hit me that Book of Mormon figures would be much more appropriate. With help from Bill Tipton the office manager we began Latter-Day Designs "Home of the Book of Mormon figures". 3" figures were the perfect size to fit in a child's pocket.

Served a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Holland ('72 -'74) Loved my  undergraduate work at BYU on a football scholarship, where I met Martha, my best friend and love of my life! Martha worked as a Registered Nurse and now keeps me healthy. I happily received a Masters degree from Notre Dame in Industrial Design. Moved to Cincinnati to work for Kenner Toys designing Star Wars, Batman, PlayDoh & Nerf to name a few. They left town, we stayed and I further built up LDD. I am living my dream, working hard and appreciate your interest. We have 6, 95% amazing daughters and 15 perfect grand children. After our  service as a senior missionary couple in Belize, we went back to being temple workers.
