Work: Small batch leather goods producer based in Richmond, California.

About: DIY (Do It Yourself) has been a constant in my life. This might have been brought about when I was growing up and seeing my Grandfather tinker and fix stuff in his workshop. I was always fascinated by craftspeople, artisans and how working with their hands can produce awesome everyday use pieces.

With that said, I also love working and making something with my hands, love to tinker and take apart stuff and see how it works. I then discovered photography in high school and taught myself about photography. Fast forward to 2005 when I started doing photography professionally until about 2016. In one of my photo shoots, we we’re in dire need of a bag that we can use for the shoot. We had a hard time finding one, so I blurted out that I’ll make it, which I surprisingly did make one and with that I was hooked. I decided to teach myself after about anything leather and leather crafting and North & East Leather was born.
