I live in Tacoma, WA with my wife and two children. I own a creative agency specializing in website design and development, called 5.12 Design Lab, LLC. My home office doubles as a wood shop, where I’ve dabbled in all sorts of woodworking projects over the years.
Turns out I really enjoy the process of turning pens, which is why this exists. Despite my children’s wishes to keep every pen I make, there’s no need to have more than a couple floating around the house. The rest can be enjoyed by others.
If you’ve purchased a pen from me in the past, thank you! Your support means a lot to me.
