Hellhound Leather began, without a name, in early 2003 when I found myself looking for a leather holster for my first gun. As my search broadened and my efforts proved fruitless, I decided that if I needed a holster and wasn't satisfied with what others offered I would make one myself.
Thus began my journey of self-taught leather craftsmanship.
Over the course of many years, mostly while creating custom pieces for friends and family, I honed my skills and expanded my craft to include a wide range of leather arts where my focus was on both beautiful form and faultless function. I take great pride in my work and demand the highest quality of myself and those things that I create. I cannot rest until I've solved a problem or built a piece that I'm truly satisfied with.
Like many leathercraft hobbyists, my art was limited to the short hours after my full time job - squeezing in what little time I could, whenever I could. For years I tried to balance the drudgery of stable employment against the joy of my craft.
Finally, the universe gifted me with an opportunity and I took a leap. I decided, like before, to rely on myself and now I follow my bliss.
