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.

It's starting to be that time of year again...wedding season! I was recently featured on the (above) blog and that's pretty exciting!...if you are me. I might be biased but I totally agree with Tiffani; I think one of my lights would make a fantastic groomsman's gift...or wedding gift! A matched set perhaps?
In the past, I've personalized a few lights with letter-stamped initials and they look really nice. Just be sure to give me at least 30 days lead time because I take batches of lights to the plating company every month or so, and I have to stamp the lights before the are plated. Alternately I'm happy to pass on the $75 minimum charge from the plating company if you need one...like right now! :)
