Can you tell us a little bit about your background?
I’ve had a somewhat unusual life since birth. I’ve never lived in one home too long. My father (RIP) was an Air Traffic Controller in the Air Force. He met my mom when he was stationed in Korea, and she was a teen. We lived in a different city every year until they divorced when I was eight. …

With a lot of ideas and inspirations floating around, everything just clicked into place; it was serendipitous synchronicity.
The design focuses above all on supporting, reclaiming and rejoicing the primal and instinctual nature. Each piece is made with craftsmanship excellence and carries an attitude — radiating confidence, translating the journey of personal growth into somewhat ‘time-worn’ and ‘imperfect’ design elements.
Every piece is engraved with the slogan “Wolf It” on the back of it. For so long our collective view of wolves has been negative, and we may think of them with fear.
