IMPORTANT: As of early 2023, I am not currently taking in new custom shoe orders; I have been slowing down my work on footwear and focusing on other artistic endeavors. I have operated Bizon Customs for nearly 10 years, and while I am not closing the door entirely, I am putting things on pause, instead turning my attention to my friends, family, and other personal creative projects! I would like to thank everyone for the support over the last decade. I'll be around!
All of my work is handpainted, and I am passionate about keeping all of my projects "one of one"; this means that no two pairs will ever be exactly the same. I do not like to look at my work as strictly a product, but rather a unique and personalized piece of art. I want every customer to have a individualized experience and to be able to express themselves through the shoes I can make for them.

I am from the Youngstown, Ohio area where I started Bizon Customs. I first discovered custom shoes through social media and decided to try it for myself. Since starting, I have customized hundreds of pairs of shoes and gotten to work with athletes, musicians, artists, and companies around the world.
I am a Duquesne University graduate with a background in Marketing and Information Systems, and I also currently work at American Eagle Outfitters on the Digital Content team.
