Born and raised on the beaches of Jacksonville, Florida, my entire existence evolved around surfing and skateboarding. Hungry for bigger and better terrain, I found my way to Los Angeles, California in 1978 where I linked up with the Dogtown and Z crew. As my skateboarding career was winding down, on a fluke idea I wound up in the glamorous fashion industry (pun intended). Working with hundreds of brands - from helping small companies all the way up to the "big boys". Sticking to my beliefs I never produced a single piece outside of Los Angeles. After 30 years a stress related illness forced me to close my business.
As a form of therapy I started drawing in the mornings. Life in general has always been my canvas. I’ve always been passionate in anything I do. These days I’ve simplified my life to hanging at our little house in the canyon with my lady, Tara, and our 3 crazy pit bulls. I've been doing a little art and I’ve found my way back to making and creating clothing, selling my wares at vintage markets, pop-ups, and a few select stores. I mix Vintage and dead stock materials that I find locally along with curated vintage pieces focusing mainly on denim and work wear. Basically a Wabi-sabi mix of mainly unisex pieces that work for everyone. I like to think of it as simple clothing for complicated times. I try to take the guess work out it, just throw and go. I was honored when Amos invited me to participate in the auction.
