Our family resides in Northeast California on the border of Oregon. We have raised cattle for the last seven years together as a family and it is what inspired me to start learning how to Silversmith in 2019. It was always in my sights to learn how to build bits and spurs and I am just getting into it with the help of some trusted mentors and my family. It was always important to me be able to understand the function of a bit or spurs, not just the looks of them, so for the past two years we have lived in a cow camp for summer and fall cowboying full time as a family just outside of Adel, Oregon. I am heavily influenced by the traditional look of Garcia and Tapia. To me the look is timeless and functional. I am humbled by the opportunity to participate in the Cowboy Arts & Gear Museums, Elko Bit and Spur Contest it has been a dream of mine for a long time!
