I have been learning, struggling, evaluating and experiencing design all my life.
I am not someone who went to school to become a designer. I went to art school to learn how to become a better artist. To live with myself and the creative that matures with me on a daily basis. I wanted to learn the history and principles of art and study the artists and designers who made the choice to live by their work.
I am inspired Mark Rothko, Andrew Wyeth and Mike and Doug Starn.
Sims Snowboards 18 / 19
I met Tom Sims in 1981. I was an Original Team rider and was lucky to have had a 35 year relationship with Tom as we worked closely together on the brand along with countless skate and snow sessions. Tom passed in 2012 and since then I have continued to help steer the brand and keep Toms legacy alive. There are a ton of Sims ambassadors out there, both skateboarding and snowboarding. The Sims DNA is a tricky road but my history with the brand allows me to carry it forward on an authentic level.
