Located within a humble abode in Dillon, Colorado, Dezign Zoo™ was established in 1994 as a graphic design and printing services company. While I still offer those services, I succumbed to a bit of creative burn out and decided that perhaps I should follow a different entrepreneurial direction.

As an artist with an inherent urge for collecting and extensive retail experience, opening online businesses that specialize in collectibles and gift items was the logical choice. My new adventure began in 2004 and currently, in addition to Dezign Zoo™ Collectibles, I own and operate other online stores including: Animal Emporium Plus - animalemporiumplus.com (formerly Dezign Zoo Animal Emporium) where you will find a large selection of animal and pet themed decor, collectibles, and giftware and, Buffalo Mountain Trading Post on Bonanza where I offer vintage collectibles, jewelry, ephemera, music, mineral specimens and much more.
