I design the gear required for the activities that I am passionate about, specifically Skateboarding, Snowboarding, and Surfing.
It's my dream to make the objects I use in my life more exciting by making them beautiful, and unique. The ability to draw, model, and paint, help me work over a design's visual properties. This hands on method is what makes the products I work on unique.
