Mr. Grabowski is an international traveler, science fiction fan, and slight adrenaline junkie. He jumped off a cliff on his honeymoon…six times. Clients applaud his attention to detail and eye for design. He takes pleasure in color-coding his Star Trek DVD collection.
A believer in “where there’s a will, there’s a way,” he has never been one to give up easily. As a kid, he was determined to make a copy of a friend’s videotape. Without hesitation, he stuffed his mega-sized VCR into his backpack and biked on over.
It’s that same can-do attitude that motivated him to build a sewing machine (complete with a bobbin), homes for his sisters’ Barbie dolls, and a car with a working transmission…all out of LEGOs. Of course, attaining that last particular LEGO set almost landed his father in a Swiss prison. But that’s a whole other story.
Bonus random fact!
Who Would Play Him in a Movie: Sean Connery, because he should play EVERY role out there. And it would be fun to hear him say “graphic and web deshiner” or “shee–esh–esh” (CSS).

Laverne or Shirley: Never really watched the show. And don’t call me Shirley.
Superpower: Toss-up between kerning with my mind and being a walking WiFi hotspot.
