HERO Bike is a full service custom bamboo bike shop in the heart of rural Alabama.
My Roles: From 2014 through 2015 I worked as the one and only employee at the HERO bamboo bike shop in Greensboro, AL. With limited templates, instruction and sparse resources, I turned the business into a flourishing boutique bike shop as a rookie builder. I became inspired as a craftsman to work with my hands, and the year in Alabama shaped my outlook as to how I want to apply myself in my professional life moving forward. Living and working in the deep south was enchanting and strange, allowing me to focus and immerse myself in my trade. My roles include. Shop manager, craftsman, workshop instructor, trade show marketing, international client relations, distribution inventory, bamboo forester, metalworker, woodworker, product design.
