The Team

These are the main players in our comedic drama.

Though we couldn't have done much without everyone who has helped us.

Tim Karoleff

Tim is all about the woods. And mountains. He had the great opportunity to learn about design from some geniuses and now he puts that knowledge to work, both creating for Ampersand and teaching product design at the University of Cincinnati. His best friends are trees.

Greg Lutz

Greg loves when art and science meet. He came from the world of strategic consulting and nonprofit management, so theoretically he’s the go-to guy on business stuff, but in reality he does a bit of everything. Greg constantly craves backpacking, bushcraft, sushi, and Beethoven.
