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.

New flashlight finish: tumbled

Hey all, just a quick post. Check out my latest finish: tumbled. This is more of a satin finish as opposed to the matte of the bead blasted. Head and tail are still polished. I have five more blasted lights available and five tumbled lights.

They are not listed on the website yet so if you want to reserve one please contact me directly! I'm building them out today and they should be ready to ship tomorrow. These will be the last of the pre-production lights. Cheers!


  1. Okay, that looks pretty smexy.

  2. looks good, Jason.. I want one!

  3. Wow, that is one classy light. By far, the sharpest of all of your lights.

  4. Hey Dad, Tim, and Cheryl, thanks! They are all starting to look the same to me so it's nice to get some feedback :)
