Making a positive impact through critical & creative thinking.

From idea to execution, I am self motivated to leverage my skills and experience to develop products that push the limits of our current expectation. With an emphasis on custom, one of a kind product development, I am driven to inspire and evoke creativity across the Globe. 

// Concept to Creation //

One-of-a-kind sneakers, designed & crafted to stand alone in a sea of feet.

// The first ever  Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star 1970's Hi-Top featuring pre-construction free hand chain stitch embroidery applied direct to duck brown waxed canvas.

// Repurposed vintage Polo Ralph-Lauren embroidered corduroy hunting pants make up this highly unique pair of Converse Chuck-Taylor All-Star 1970's Hi-Tops. The only pair of its kind.

// One of a kind, completely hand made uppers featuring hand-tooled detailing and vintage brass conchos have been hand stitched to pair of Converse CT-PRO Hi-Top bottoms using kangaroo leather lace.

// Custom Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star 1970's featuring tattooed veg tanned leather & suede. Medial/Lateral panels have been tattooed pre-construction direct to leather by the world renowned tattoo artists at Smith Street Tattoo in Brooklyn, NY. Another first of its kind for customized footwear.

// Original flash designs from Smith Street Tattoo printed directly onto a pair of Converse Chuck-Taylor All-Star 1970's using a specially constructed mounting system and a Brother DTG 3 series printer.

// 1930's era vintage Shabori dyed french indigo denim comprise this one of a kind pair of Converse Chuck-Taylor All-star 1970's. Each panel is completely unique from the repairs and patchwork,  each panel tells a different story from the original material.


Imagination is the root of creation and creativity transpires in endless forms. With an unrelenting will and creative approach, I altered a stock motorcycle from its original form bringing to life my personal vision of what a classic American chopper is.

// 1987 Harley-Davidson Big Twin Evolution Chopper.

Always handmade // Always one-of-a-kind

Each and every piece is completely handmade exclusively by myself using the finest materials available. Every template is created from scratch, tested and refined to produce the most functional and completely unique product, every single time.  Genuinely sourced fabrics compliment the custom ordered, one-of-a-kind imagery that is first hand drawn then cut and "tooled" by hand into the leather. Japanese brass hardware elevates the design while ensuring the longevity to match these durable pieces. Stitched, sewn, braided or riveted, the finishing details frame the overall piece with un-compromised strength and reliability. Every piece I make is truly built with the intention of outliving the owner to become a timeless family heirloom. Embodying the spirit of each individual as it passes through generations.

Thank you for looking.
