Andy Fyfe is a longtime Art Nerd and Weird Stuff Enthusiast. An adventurer, traveler, gamer, costumer, LARPer, and crafter of objects, his many varied interests and passions have been a driving force behind the necessity to learn how to make things for himself and friends that would be otherwise unobtainable. He draws inspiration primarily from the natural world and the creative geniuses of bygone eras, informed by his experience as an avid outdoorsman. Before becoming a fulltime Armorer and Crafter, he previously worked as a fishmonger, bookseller, landscaper, handyman, bouncer, roofer, mover, barker, and taught art at a juvenile detention facility. He currently lives in Everett, MA with his wife Barbara, son Owen, and armor cat Jenga.
Barb Fyfe has been sewing for over a decade. While most of the work you see on the site is Andy’s creative genius, Barb focuses on garment grade leather and clothing products. Oh, and managing the business part of this whole thing. Hey- if you can’t be a creative genius, at least work with one. 🙂 Barb has bachelor’s degrees in both English and Business and an MBA. Her nerd roots include: Musical theatre, LARPing, and cosplay. She loves to travel and probably has a spreadsheet going for her next dream trip. Barb currently works for a software startup for her day job.
Jenga is a freeloader Savannah Cat. She enjoys lying down while eating and screaming for no reason. When she’s not snuggling, sleeping, eating, or yelling at her parents, she’s probably modeling some twisted creation her dad made her.
