Biography

Dennis has a background in fine arts, art history, and English. In his design solutions, he combines original ideas with a profound understanding for clear communication. Although he appreciates the elegance of traditional design, he also enjoys the daily challenge of stretching to meet his clients’ ever-changing communication needs and expectations.

Fitness-conscious clients often run into Dennis at the Student Recreational Sports Center, where he works out regularly (and where he once moonlighted as a Rec Sports personal trainer).

In 2008, Dennis launched a website to share his research on an Italian POW camp where his father was interned during WW II. The site has led to close friendships with many former prisoners and their families across the United States, Great Britain, and Australia. Dennis has also connected with families in Italy’s Tenna Valley who sheltered POWs who escaped from the Camp 59.

Dennis and his partner Mark are dog lovers. Their vacations often involve long road trips with their cairn terrier and two standard poodles.

When I moved to Bloomington in 1979, Herman B Wells was still very active as chancellor. I visit the Wells sculpture each year for a moment of meditation and to touch his fingers for good luck.
