In a world where we often take for granted the objects we surround ourselves with, there is a ritual of every day life that has become engulfed with disposable products, cheaply made goods, and poor food choices. Through observation of these habits we can move forward in life to make changes that will positively affect our well-being. It is the goal of OVMI Designs to create lasting, thought-out products that enhance our rituals of living through the use of intentionality in our every day life.
I am a self taught Designer / Maker. It has been a long process to get to where I am now. It all started about 10 years ago when I had an idea for a project that involved the need for a lathe. After picking up a cheap one at harbor freight I become hooked with the process. Lots of time, in the shop and on Youtube, and lots of cash later I have finally reached a point were I can be proud to say, 'I made that.' I am always striving to work with new material. That exploration is what drives me to make work, while simultaneously making new ideas take a while to get off the ground.
I am thirty one years old. I grew up kicking around in the dirt in Oldham County, KY. I have always been an outdoorsman one way or another, constantly playing in the woods, riding bikes, and getting myself into all sorts of adventures. I have always been into making something with my hands, and its that which drives me most into my endeavor
