East Fourth Street is a Proud Member of:


East Fourth Street is the name of my business because I grew up on an East Fourth Street in the middle of Minnesota. It’s where I was allowed to make messes, and those messes were the first sprouts of my creativity. My memories are golden and I used to wonder if there was a job where people would pay me for what I made.

I kept being a maker and studied design specializing in metals. It prepared me to work as a jewelry designer, and also step into the consumer product design industry, which I did for awhile. Working with something as hard as metal shapes the way you think about other things. The opportunity to work with things as precious as gold, diamonds and gemstones gave me a deep respect for our natural world and it’s people. Creating East Fourth Street really cumulates what I do, what I feel and what I think.
