I was born in Grand Haven, grew up skateboarding, drawing and listening to punk rock in the 80’s. My love for wood working, art and skateboarding brought me to the realization that I should create a company that involves all of my passions. Our main focus is skateboard decks, but will offer other products.

The reason the company is named 5 Mile Hill, is because when I was a young street skater, I loved taking on a treacherous hill road that over looked Grand Haven’s Lake Michigan beach called 5 mile hill. Plus, it’s a tribute to my home town and the skaters.

Our goal is to produce the finest products and get more involved into the community.  We are trying to produce everything in Michigan and in the USA.
