on a personal note....
Kirk is an avid cyclist and loves to travel – his favorite destination city is Lake Iseo, Italy. His inspiration for being a designer came from Amos Chang, a well-known architecture professor at Kansas State University, where Kirk attended. A little known tidbit about Kirk is that he raced in the Soap Box Derby.
