I have been doing my own work on leather and tools for most of my life and am looking forward to sharing my unique humor, adventures and skillset with fun people looking to get out and BE PRESENT with more fun people.
I have been on tour for much of my life with major country music acts and have left that world to settle down here in the Boulder area.
Come out and say hello and lets make something together.
