BROpin pins

Get to know this talented babe!!!


I’m a maker originally from the Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, currently living in the Bay Area. I’ve been around motorcycles since I was a wee lady. My dad used to take me to elementary school on the back of his 1972 BMW R75/5, and I remember feeling like the coolest girl in school as I got off of that bike, even if I had foam crumbles in my hair from the ancient helmet my dad had kept around since the 60s. Motorcycles are very much a part of who I am, and my boyfriend and I are currently planning a round the world bike trip.

When I’m not riding, I’m making things. As a kid, I could lock myself in my room with craft supplies and be content for hours. I jump at the opportunity to gain new skills in order to create something new, or to be better at the skills I already have. I have dabbled in drawing, painting, sewing, photography, sculpture, and currently spend most of my time in my jewelry studio.

I’m so happy to have been able to make these pins for BRO 2015, but this project almost didn’t happen. In July, literally days after the plans were set and production was to begin, I was in a motorcycle accident that landed me in an operating room and did not allow me to use my right arm for two months. But I was so determined to not only heal in time to make these pins, but also ride myself down to Joshua Tree for Babes Ride Out! Well, I did it! BRO is so special to me, and I’m thrilled about the amount of women that have joined the community in the last few years. I’m so proud to be a part of this growing movement of amazing and supportive women.
