Over the past twenty-some years, I’ve traveled extensively throughout Asia and Europe for my sourcing/import business. During my free downtime, I was drawn to the local craft markets and shops of local makers in many different countries. I discovered the culture of leather and leather crafting. Soon after, it quickly became a hobby, then an obsession, and a full-time passion. I met friendly fellow makers in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Vietnam, Japan, Italy, and elsewhere throughout Asia and Europe with their own unique styles, art, and passion. Their work and creativity continue to inspire me to reach higher and push further in my craft.
