Late introduction as I just renewed my membership!
My name is Sean, I'm from NYC but temporarily located in NJ.
I've studied at Pratt Institute in design and learned some leatherwork there.
I use to be a runway designer at Coach for 5 years in bags and shoes but left the industry for a career change into tech. I've learned so much from the artisans and fallen in love with anything leather during my time there. I miss it terribly :(
After some online search, I was happy to find Leathercraft MasterClass and was hooked ever since. The WFH opportunity was perfect timing for me to sharpen my skills and learn much more!
I'm looking forward to meeting new members and sharing our experiences!
