Aliki. Former security at MRF, she's also a customer, campground guru, and personal friend! Hey, why is she cuddling my flintlock?
Alison was my first and best helper. Having known her for a number of years, I first met her when she answered a modeling ad for a photographic project of mine. Since then we have formed a solid working and personal friendship, and she continued to help me through my numerous projects until she moved to Brazil in May of 2004. She has now taken a husband and has recently given birth to their first child!

Photo from 1996. Rhett passed away on May 31, 2006. It was his leather armor that first drew my attention to him, and was one the things that encouraged me to get into the leather business. We would not actually formally meet and become friends until our paths crossed again at Mayfaire in May of 2006. He was at my place where I told him the story and showed him the photos from 10 years ago. Two days later, he died.

PROTESTERS take notice: Boycotting leather goods will not affect the production of raw leather!

No animals were hurt or killed for the creation of these products; most leather is a by-product of the ginormous meat industry!

If my colleagues and I didn't make stuff out of it, that leather would just get thrown away and wasted.
