Lepisto has a BFA with Honors from Alfred University (NY). He has worked for a number of glass and glass related companies, including Bullseye Glass where he was the Lead Technician for Research and Education as well as lead furnace builder.

He has taught worldwide and has held Visiting Instructor posts in both the Rochester Institute of Technology (NY) and the Canberra School of Art (Australia). His work is available from several of the finer glass art galleries, including the Bullseye Connection Gallery and the William Traver Gallery.
