Hey, Jesse here - I'm a maker. I guess I picked it up from my dad, he's got mad skills. He seemed to think that having your own shop needed to happen before puberty did. I started off making remote control boats, electric generators, telephone bugs and lots of music. Mecano was my friend.
I headed off to get a degree in Mechanical Engineering at the U of Waterloo because I thought I'd get to make lots of great things. After spending years trying to save the environment and working for everyone under the sun I finally realized that engineers don't get to make anything, they get others to do it for them. That's no fun.
I pulled a u-turn and returned to my passion for design, studying industrial design at the U of Carleton in Ottawa, and got back into make custom gear. I started working with leather and haven't been able to stop…
