He has spent 13 years growing his stencil company and has been featured by Martha Stewart, The New York Times, ReadyMade, and Country Living.
Ed has also done customized DIY events for clients such as Levi’s and Converse. As well as large-scale stencil installation work for the Ace Hotel NY and Benjamin Moore.
