“Each time I make a product, it feels like the first and only time I'm making it. There's a sense of uniqueness in each one, even if it might be part of a larger inventory.”

A life of PowerPoint and business casual was leaving Dana feeling disillusioned and burnt out. Looking for something that would provide a little more satisfaction for his soul, he took up leather working as a fun way to bring purpose back to his life. And it seems he's succeeded. If you would call working full-time on his creations a success (and we would). Instead of toiling over spreadsheet analysis, he now spends his days focused on the techniques, materials and tools of making leather goods. Goodbye corporate America, hello handcrafted leather goodness. He doesn't miss a thing.
