limited production :: hand crafted :: high performance :: rechargeable :: premium flashlights

This is my blog about creating a startup LED flashlight business. I'm a designer, fabricator, and strategist and I'm passionate about making ideas real. I believe that products are about people, that they should be built to last, deliver real value, and that we need to do a better job than we have in the recent past.

Most of my career has been contract or freelance work and I've crafted products and strategies for both big international companies and startups. I also used to work in the "industry" fabricating special effects for film and TV, along with the occasional hot rod. Bottom line, I love making things.

I'm starting this blog so you can follow along, from day one, and see what it's like to start a business, or fail in the process. Only time will tell, but I hope you find this interesting enough to stay tuned, comment, link, like, tweet, and (most importantly) participate in turning this idea into something tangible and valuable.

For a good place to get started with general info about who, what, why, etc., check out the "Stickies" on the left side of the page. Thanks for stopping by and please don't hesitate to ask questions and get involved!

Maker's Mark Arrived

I got an exciting tidbit in the mail maker's mark stamp. A picture is worth a thousand words so I won't torture you with text this time. The resolution of the stamp is incredible. I don't even know how you could make this thing so small and so detailed. Keep in mind the circle is 1/8" in diameter! Really impressive work by Infinity Stamps. Anyway, I gave it a try today and I had to make a special tool that will be the subject of another post in the near future. In the mean time, enjoy the wonders of macro photography.

I'll have ten more pre-production lights for sale at the end of next week. After that full production will begin and each light will be serialized and stamped with my maker's mark! Stay tuned if you want to own light # 001.
