Upon discovering the creative community of Make Your Own Gear (MYOG) enthusiasts, Tim was immediately enamored with the idea of DIY gear for backpacking and hiking. Since making his first backpack in 2017 for a multi-day hike in the White Mountains to launching his site LearnMYOG.com in 2020, sewing recreational packs and technical apparel has become an all-consuming hobby. Akin to woodworking, turning a conceptual idea into a functional item is incredibly rewarding, without the mess of sawdust or working in a cold garage! Through design, patterning, and sharing instructional projects, Tim is continually inspired by seeing others experience the outdoors with their own hand-made gear.
