Great interview! Funny that he has a degree in glass — I’m a couple hours short of a BFA in glass and another toy/game inventor friend of mine also blows glass. I’m beginning to think glass people are very inventive! LOL!

Thanks Kim, Damian was really interesting to talk to. I am starting to think perhaps I should take up glass too as it sounds like it’s a prerequisite for being an inventor :)
