A New York native, Noah attended the University of Michigan School of Art & Design, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.  A visual artist, musician, and entrepreneur, he combined his passions for art and music by starting his business, Leon Speakers.  Over the past 20 years, he's seen Leon grow from a small, local shop to a global company with products that can be found in homes and businesses all over the world.  Noah is a firm believer that art and music shape our culture and that a business is like a sculpture: a never-ending work in progress.
