About

Weekend Warrior never really grows up..

For years, these ideas have been rolling around in my head. I knew there were tools out there to help make these sketches come into reality.. just that they were out of reach. Near the end of 2013, it was time to pull the trigger and land the tools I needed to make it all happen. The garage will never be the same.. no room for a car or jeep anymore!
Fast forward to 2017.. after 3 years of jumping hurdles and pushing towards my passion, life is pretty good! You can barely walk around in the garage with all the fun toys and machines it takes to bring ideas to life. The new chapter has gone from lots of trial and error.. lots of sleepless nights in the studio (fancy name for garage), and making it through my third holiday season with only a few battle scars.. into the most fun I've had in years.
The Spring thaw opens up with a fully packed schedule of local popup sales.. (oh yea, the mobile store keeps me busy too). I get to see and learn from my customers in person. I get instant feedback with what ideas connect with them and how I can improve on what works too.
The new chapter is proving to be successful when you factor in the emotional fulfillment along with the investment paying off. Turns out the "One man" in the company ends up being a very busy guy. Just designing new things is a blast.. but learning to balance all the other hats one must wear to make a company work is pretty overwhelming. Marketing, building, filling orders, sourcing materials, equipment maintenance, IT, etc.. Tough to know what my title is some days! But yes.. why did I wait so long? Most of these things are done within my backyard in the garage (feet from the kitchen and fridge.) It's all worth it. :)

    Wow, how did I get to 42 so quick? A happy life is about Balance. I'm working on getting that part right! It doesn't feel like work when you get to create things that make you smile! Hope you enjoy the things that come out of my garage, too. :)

    I spend most of my days being spoiled rotten with long walks along the river and swimming at the lake. I get plenty of belly rubs and endless supplies of doggie biscuits for being cute. I enjoy spending time in the garage on my huge pillow napping!
