I grew up with a master craftsman, my father, a shoe repairman who has won national awards. At an early age I began to practice sewing leather, hand stitching with pliers, and using a foot peddled patcher sewing machine. Many of the machines and tools I used in my father's repair shop are tools I still use today to design patterns, cut and sew custom leather moccasins. The bison leather that I use to craft custom fit moccasins and boots has the excellent quality of being both supple and durable.

I began to craft the current style of custom moccasins pictured on this web site in 1991. I have modified them through the years to make them more comfortable and durable.  My goal has always been to make a pair of moccasins that will last as long as you want to wear them.

I enjoy making moccasins partly for the joy of working with leather but also for the joy I can bring to my customers by making their feet comfortable.
