I grew up in Santa Cruz CA where I spent my childhood outdoors. My passion for design developed very rely with modification of toys. This quikly progressed into a passion once I gained the ability to create objects for myself that were not accessible to me. I finished my BFA in industrial design where I cultivated that passion into a career.
I am heavily influenced by things from the past generations when things were simpler. This interest spills over into my hobby of restoring and surfing vintage surfboards and driving and working on vintage cars. I have recently become very interested in fly fishing and camping in remote destinations.
My favorite thing about camping is creating camping structures based on the environment.
