Born and raised in the PNW, I've developed a strong passion for the outdoors. From hiking through the Mt. Rainier National Park to snowboarding all winter long, I can't get enough of my home region. More importantly, I've discovered the great need for a major change in our consumption habits, one geared toward environmental protection and preservation. That's why, after completing my collegiate volleyball career and graduating with a Bachelor's degree from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC, I founded Five12 Apparel. It's been an incredible journey creating technical active wear from post-consumable, recycled materials, and I'm eager to continue our mission to change the apparel industry one eco-friendly piece at a time.
