my name is Haywire. when i drink too much, everything goes haywire. i grew up in nyc always drawn to the action of the underground. but huge egos in the city. everyone thinks they need to be the tough guy. i believe love is the answer. not a bigger ego.
i loved every scene nyc birthed: punk, goth, S&M, uptown flash, brooklyn art & poetry. GG Allin was my spirit animal.
i was always riding moto and creating things. inhaling all the wacky souls that gotham hosted back in the 80s & 90s. a weeknight was mushrooms + ecstasy at a sketchy event till sunrise, then a buttered roll & coffee while i played chess at tompkins square park before going to work by 7am. i worked on Wall Street, then two different technology startups, a large NGO, & other careers . my body put up with that for about 15 years. one sunday i was walking the Hells Kitchen flea market and found a leather hide of tooling leather. i cut it up and literally bolted together a messenger bag. carved some crude images on it. people flipped for it. that formed my 6th career, a leather craftsman. for some reason i went into making custom eccentric furniture first. i immediately became pretty renowned in the design world. lots of rad articles written about me and celebrity clients etc. when the financial crash hit in 2008 I decided to close my work shop and lighten my load. no more employees to manage, no work studio to maintain, etc. i started to travel, ride more, meet more people, expand my understanding of living. lately I've been riding the west coast a lot. the national parks in this country are stunning. now I make cool custom leather pieces for people i dig. hope you like my website. love is the answer. wheelies are king.
