Growing up in the countryside of Vietnam I was taught to respect the world around us. Like many impoverished areas of the world, people were unable to care for the environment. Neighboring communities collected their trash in piles to burn rather than recycle. When I came to the US in 2015 it was the first time I saw a beach that wasn’t lined with plastic. Living in Vietnam provided me with inspiration for our products. My goal is that our products are functional, long lasting, and always adding value to your life. I find joy in knowing we are making a difference in the world.

Growing up in the heart of America gave me a unique perspective on life. Midwest hospitality taught me that it’s more than what we say, it’s what we do for others that matters. I believe that everyone wants to do the right thing, but too many people just sit around and talk about it. I developed an eye for design at an early age. During college, I started an apparel line with a friend. Then after college I chose a more technical path as an engineer.
