Personal Quote:

Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.

Favorite True North Product:

My Dragon Shield™ FR Soft Shell Jacket.   I have an older one for working outside and one for date night.  

I love working at True North because we feel like a family that exists to protect the greater tribe.  We manufacture the best protective clothing and gear available on the planet, all while having fun doing it. 

I reside in Windham, New Hampshire with my wife Lea and our children Samantha and Brooks. The other two loves of my life are my other girls (dogs) Mink and Coco. I earned an MBA from Clemson and a Master's of Textile Engineering degree from the Institute of Textile Technology. The last decade of my career has been dedicated to the creation and promotion of protective fabrics and garments for the Global Military and Workwear markets.
