About Us

After nearly a decade of working for startup companies engaged in designing and marketing products related to consumer electronics and law enforcement needs, it was time for me to strike out on my own. I looked at my own interests and needs and it was obvious where I needed to place my company's focus: 

Outdoor Adventure 

Growing up in Alaska, my parents taught me that finding adventure was a key part of life. By the age of 3, it was clear to me that many adventures were found somewhere near a tent. Even way back then, I knew there had to be a better way to set up a tent. 

 (You could say the Beta 1+ took decades to design.

Now I live in Seattle, and I'm still looking for new adventures. I have ridden my trusty KLR650 from here to the Arctic Ocean, down to Moab, up from Northern California and I have completed the Washington and Oregon Backcountry Discovery Routes. I'm dreaming of more to come. 
Backcountry Discovery Routes  |  Trans America Trail

All of these trips were done with a 21" long pvc pipe sticking out from my bike. The pipe was there to protect my tent poles. Why such a long pipe, you ask? Because the tent pole sections are so long. Why are the tent pole sections so long? Umm...  


I was looking for ways to lighten and shrink the gear I took on trips. 

(A lighter bike is more fun off road!)

As I looked at the tents out there I realized that none fit all my requirements. 

  • Freestanding
  • Large enough for one person and motorcycle gear, or two people 
  • Poles that fit in a pannier or top box
  • Small packed size
  • Lightweight.
  • Under $500   

So I designed one.


After showing the prototype to several people, I realized I was onto something. 
Sprocket 67 and the Beta 1+ is what happened next. 

I’m working hard to expand to three tent models and a sleeping bag by the end of 2014.

If you moto-camp, bicycle or kayak tour, do multi-day trail runs, or just wan to downsize your load, I am designing equipment for you.  

Thank you for believing in my products. If you see me out on the trails, say hi!
