subscriptions to Surfer and Thrasher magazine in
the mailbox every month, I grew up living my
California dream; albeit in the utterly flat state
of Minnesota. Sadly, the diminutive waves that the
boats created and the particularly short seasons
of sunny weather left me yearning for more. After
finishing my education in yet another landlocked
state, Idaho, I made my way back to the cold
winters of Minnesota to get some good corporate
experience under my belt. There I learned the
ways of the big clientele.
I was ready. After a pit stop in Idaho for some good
winter skiing, I headed west for California. My
California dream began as a slow search for jobs while
immersing myself in the surf and skate culture.
While working for a couple alternative sports companies
I found my creative mind flooded with images
of the beach and the lifestyle that surrounds it.
Using photography, screenprinting, sewing, painting
and other mediums I’m creating an outlet for
this overflow of Beach Lifestyle at heybison.com.
