Thank you!

These are the people Teddy depends on now or has in the past to make his business what it is. Some are paid, some are not – all are dedicated to his success. Success for Teddy is not what it is for many others. Success is having a place in the community where you are welcomed and valued and have purpose. Teddy’s Ts give Teddy the opportunity to live the kind of life he wants to live.

Teddy’s mom – does anything more need to be said?

Rich is Susan’s partner in life. He is also part of the lifeblood of Teddy’s business. Without Rich, Teddy’s would not be silkscreening his own designs or have so many buttons. Rich is our personal geek – he also makes Teddy’s ideas into artistic images.

Tarryn is Teddy’s cousin. She has helped at Teddy’s conference events. She shared her bedroom at our house with his business for several years. Tarryn and Teddy get along like most siblings do.

Dan Wilkins of the Nth Degree gave Teddy his start in the tshirt selling business. We will always owe Dan a debt of gratitude for how he helped Teddy on his way. Teddy began his business by selling only a few of Dan’s designs. Eventually he sold over thirty of them. He still sells almost 2 dozen of them on our miscellaneous page.


Megan Bouchard encouraged Teddy to learn to silkscreen and create the buttons he designs with an electronic button making machine. She made the first buttons Teddy designed.

Ken Veenstra was Teddy’s Support Coordinator through Community Living Services of Oakland County (CLS). Ken was much more than a supports coordinator to Teddy – he is a trusted and loved friend.
