Years working as a backcountry horseman and dog handler naturally led me to creating my own rope equipment and technical apparel. As my craftsmanship improved I gained confidence in using my prototypes for work applications and became fascinated by the process of outdoor equipment design and product development. Furthermore, recent astounding leaps forward in materials and manufacturing technologies have ignited my enthusiasm to explore fresh ideas for outdoor technical equipment. In September 2016 I formed BESOTORO LLC to further develop my designs and to propose solutions which inspire outdoor adventure creativity and function.

For me this company is not merely about selling toys for thrill and distraction, nor catering to our obsession with buying a competitive edge. Rather I am dedicated to designing equipment for outdoor recreational and professional fields which promises a healthier, cleaner planet for the future. My aim is to create tools which support the human creativity, adaptivity, cooperation, and resilience required for overcoming the environmental and cultural challenges we face today. This means adventuring beyond the existing outdoor sport-recreation paradigm, pioneering innovative equipment with immediate usability and recognizable versatility, and stoking our strength and curiosity for navigating the unknown.

My first BESOTORO LLC project is to offer dog-handling and horse-handling rope products based on designs I've been thoroughly testing and improving over the years. The leashes and leads I make are ideal for working horse- and dog- professionals and for those dedicated to a lifestyle of adventurous dog- or horse-keeping. My rope equipment is designed and constructed to function wonderfully and to endure rigorous adventuring. I am currently a one-man operation, personally managing this website and crafting each leash and lead to order from my farm workshop in rural New Hampshire. Developing a line of rugged field apparel is in the works for the future, starting with an effort to newly define everyday outdoor pants.
