I upcycle. I take old leather jackets and tents and transform them into beautiful and useful things. I upcycle because I want my carbon footprint to be as small as possible. When I use what others have thrown away, I know that the earth’s resources aren’t being depleted on my behalf.

Some of my raw material has been given to me, but most I purchase at the Red Cross of Iceland, which is our Goodwill. By using the leather and tents in Iceland, it’s a win-win situation, since oil does not have to be used to ship the items abroad to be recycled.

Then there is the passion and need to create. I sometimes say that there are people who can't wait to sit down with a good book. I, however, fall asleep thinking about what I'm going to create the next day.

Most of what I make serves a purpose, it holds something. The infinities hold stuff, the cool cords hold cords, and the books hold memories.
