I've been working with leather since I was a kid and have been making boots since 1995. I make everything from boots to motorcycle seats & everything in between, wallets, braids, belts, wall panels,patches, etc. but my passion is boots. I've had the pleasure of making boots for some very famous people, infamous people & lots of people that should be famous! Some people think that using leather is cruel & an exploitation of animals but in reality leather is just a by product of the meat industry, so if everyone turned vegetarian I would be out of business & everything that I have made in the past would be worth millions! For me, being able to use leather is another way of recycling and repurposing of a by product while also making one of a kind creations.
My other passion is metal engraving, there is something about it that is meditative or maybe it's just hypnotism! looking through a microscope hours…
