Made The Hard Way
In our Portland, Oregon workshop, we take products from design to fabrication, with a little help from collaborators along the way. Since 2009, we've been using this hands-on process to create products that couldn’t exist otherwise.
Our Mission is to Make Work Meaningful...

Jim Hassert

Jim is an efficiency enforcer with a heart of gold, hailing from the ever expanding Chicagoland beast in Illinois. He’s passionate about anything embodying variety and balance at the same time, think tight rope walking octopi or sumo wrestlers practicing yoga. Jim can hold his own on the soccer field, chess board, yoga mat, and conference room. He and his wife Sarah annually host a short film festival and an audio festival through their creative group, Yumi Life.

Yuji Tomita

At age 25, Yuji discovered that the animated series Adventure Time contains the truth about all things in life. Each morning, he wakes up and shouts into the void, “What’s going on? Have we seen into the future?” He’s a self-taught web programming wizard who makes Grovemade.com come to life. His hard work behind-the-scenes makes countless internet purchases possible everyday.

I'M GOOD AT: WATCHING ADVENTURE TIME

Victor Nguyen

Victor, aka Victor Sweet, aka Victor Strong is not only our awesome Production Manager but he’s also one of our most powerful Grovemaders. Victor’s secret for superhuman  strength? A steady diet of hip-hop, rap, R&B and heaping scoops of white hot magma. When through with his morning routine of deadlifting small cars and tiny houses, you’ll find him fishing the banks of the Columbia River, where he reels in trolley-sized carps with his steely bare hands and a visage of extreme aplomb. When not performing unmatchable feats of strength, you’ll find this dynamo enjoying the many tasty tidbits found far and wide in our fair city.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: A MEAN BEAR
FAVORITE GOOD WORD: "THANK YOU!"

Dashia Fontleroy

Dashia is the magical fairy of the woodshop; actually, she’s the magical fairy of everything good about Grovemade and life in general. When she’s not in the workshop, she’s building bookshelves at home or crocheting scarves and hats. Maybe all the gravel she sucked on as a child contributed to her talent with natural materials? Look out small stones, Dashia is a force of positive energy to be reckoned with. She’s also a loving Mom of two, and her true number one passion is family.
I'M GOOD AT: BUILDING THINGS

Ken Tomita

Ken started the company with Joe in 2009 under the impression that eventually there’d be free pizza. Ken is a design nerd and furniture designer with a passion for photography and collecting weird things, like fruit stickers. He’s an active field trip enabler and enjoys bribing the team with Trailblazers tickets and empty promises that someday we’ll all get to see his expertly curated apartment. Check out some of his furniture designs here.

I'M GOOD AT: DANCING TO 90s MUSIC

Sean Kelly

Sean is a man-bear hybrid who rules the woodshop with the ultimate weapon: love. His heart is so big he doesn’t have room for any other organs, and he’s got a PhD in Silliness. Alright, he does have a brain, but, it’s part of his heart -- it’s like a heart-brain. His heart-brain is SMART. This guy is a space camp graduate and a product design genius! He’s also got an amazing collection of embarrassing stories to make you cringe with joy.

I LIKE TO HELP PEOPLE LAUGH.
IF I CAN'T HELP THEM, I MAKE THEM.

Max Brown

Max, named for the main character in Where the Wild Things Are, knows everything about every movie ever made. He’s got a passion for storytelling, from graphic novels and 80s horror films to Ray Bradbury. His resume paints a picture of a colorful life: projectionist, graphic artist at a modeling agency, bartender in foggy Astoria, photographer and videographer, and illustrator extraordinaire. Check out his illustrations here.
I'M GOOD AT: CRIBBAGE
SPIRIT ANIMAL: GHOST DOG

Christopher Stepanian

Christopher keeps to a strict diet of one movie per day, to keep the doctor away. Naturally, this involves lots of inside time, but don’t worry, he also believes in going outside. Some of his other favorite things are designing furniture, playing video games, and eating tacos. In the shop, he leverages those skills (primarily eating tacos) to coax beautiful shapes from raw materials.

I’M GOOD AT: RE-WATCHING THE OFFICE THE SECOND I FINISH IT

Nozomi Nakayama Ratchford

Nozomi is a world-traveling musician and number wizard extraordinaire. She makes sure all of our business details have nice snug little homes where they don’t get lost or swept under the rug. In a past life, she was a scientist, and we all feel much smarter when she’s around. Her ideal Sunday includes Dim Sum - but she wouldn’t tell us about the rest of the day, because she says she really likes to be mysterious, so there you go.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: MONKEY
I'M GOOD AT: REMEMBERING DETAILS

John Rasmussen

John is the master process-optimizer and efficiency aficionado in our shop, where he gets his hands dirty each day building beautiful products. He is a Portland native, and, so, naturally, he’s also an accomplished rock drummer. He has a rad collection of bikes, which he uses exclusively for cruisin’. He likes the Flaming Lips, and suggests that if you see them live, you should pay attention to the drummer.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: SNOOP DOG
I’M GOOD AT: DRUMMING AND MAKING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC

Louisa Funke

Louisa says that her favorite chip flavor is either honey dijon or pickle. We think you can tell a lot about a person by her chip choices—and those are some strong chip choices. When not in the shop, Louisa spends her time creating stories and creatures in her sketchbooks, exploring Portland by bike, and getting into the great outdoors. When in the shop, Louisa helps us make perfect products.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: FARM DOG
I'M GOOD AT: FINDING THE IDEAL CAMPSITE

Clark Pope

Clark is our favorite Portland-native, ex-archeologist on-call mercenary craftsman! You can find him listening to Cypress Hill, old-school funk, or the Grateful Dead, but if you call him Jerry, it’s gonna cost you 50¢. Clark is a fan of many adventures: adventures in cubes with bouncy balls (racquetball), adventures in lines (gardening) and adventures in sawdust (woodworking). Clark has so much character and pizzazz that sometimes he has to take a break and just go on an adventure with his wife.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: MANATEE
I'M GOOD AT: LIMERICKS AND SONG PARODIES

Nick LaPlante

Nick is an accomplished toothbrusher. He used to do 20 pushups every night before bed, but he stopped a while ago and hasn’t looked back. Some of his favorite things are coffee, cooking while wearing aprons, throwing anything round, and music. Nick is our resident word-smith and idea generator and customer question answerer. He loves email subject lines and looking at numbers for a long time and then drawing graphs.

I'M GOOD AT: THINKING ABOUT THINGS
SPIRIT ANIMAL: SHEEP

Christian Neilander

Christian is a jack of all trades, but don’t call him “Jack”. Event planning? Check. Building everything? Check. Resident wakeboarder? Check. Producing a vodka brand? Check. He came to us from Lake Tahoe and the University of Oregon Product Design program, where he says he built a particle accelerator that fits in your pocket, but we think he was exaggerating. In his spare time he advises on ideal burger toppings and talks about his Subaru.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: COOKIE MONSTER
I'M GOOD AT: MAKING THINGS

Sara Segura

Sara is so good at learning about things, that sometimes you say, “When did she learn to do that?” But before you even finish saying that she’s learned about something else! She’s a chocolate enthusiast with a degree in design. She likes to ponder low-waste living and sustainability while biking to work, which is nicely consistent of her. Unsurprisingly, she excels at many things in the shop, from woodworking to customer service and writing.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: KOALA
I'M GOOD AT: LEARNING!

Mike Vos

Mike is a passionate pursuer of the perfect photo. And, the perfect pad thai. He’s a professional in many senses of the word: professional large format film photographer, professional musician, professional skateboard instructor, and professional positive presence. Mike is also a professional in the woodshop. His favorite letter might by ‘p,’ but let’s not get too carried away.  You can check out his photography here.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: CAT
I'M GOOD AT: WORKING HARD FOR THINGS I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT!

Ben Wood

Ben is a fellow of numerous talents. Here at Grovemade, he's our manufacturing engineer, meaning he commands our machinery to do as he wills! He also fixes them when they break and puts them on timeout when they disobey the rules. A dedicated father of two radical daughters, Ben also loves taking them to the backcountry for adventurous excursions. When the perfect river or stream is found, they bring in the fish with Ben's handmade rods and flies. In his free time, Ben is also hard at work inventing a robot that will sing his favorite lullabies as he prepares to dive into his daily afternoon nap. And beware of disturbing Ben when he's at rest—his prototype Lullaby Robot X-25 is also outfitted with lasers.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: CUTTHROAT TROUT

Joe Mansfield

Joe is the other half of Grovemade’s founding pair, along with Ken. After six years of life changing challenges at Grovemade, he decided to switch things up and start a new paper goods company called Pacific & West. He continues to laser anything he can fit into his machine, including a line of premium customizable leather goods called Engrave Goods
I'M GOOD AT: RUNNING

Keckeley Habel

Keckeley is sometimes just so stoked that she’s not sure where to start. Which means she glides through the shop and headquarters, conquering any and all tasks. A Montana native, the Big Sky state has inspired a life-long pursuit of motion - from Sweden to London, the Appalachian Trail to upstate New York. She’s touched down in Portland to get to know all there is about biking and skiing… two things, which, if you’re in the know, you’ll know involve lots of fast movement.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: LOON
I’M GOOD AT: TRYING NEW THINGS

Phil Riggio

Uncle Fix-it-Phil is our resident luthier and master woodworker. He's a lover not a fighter... but he might fight you if you try to steal his ramen or pho. The other day at lunch, he almost ate a spider. He hails from sunny California, by way of sunny Hawaii. If he's not in our shop making our products shine and sparkle and work like a charm, you can find him in his own workshop, where he builds amazingly beautiful ukuleles (check them out here). Or peacefully floating above the golf links or the rivers where he communicates with fish and other wildlife via energy beams.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: TIGER

Jimmy Nguyen

Jimmy is kinda like a ray of sunshine, but don’t worry about wearing sunscreen, it’s just a metaphor. He’s a self professed jack-of-all-trades, a maker, a tinkerer, a doer. When not doing and making in the shop, he likes doing and making in the kitchen and at home. And, he loves the outdoors where it may be more appropriate to wear sunscreen.

SPIRIT ANIMAL: CORGI
I’M GOOD AT: PETTING DOGS I SEE WHEN I’M OUT AND ABOUT

Brodie Gordon

Brodie is well-traveled young gentleman who's seen it all. Right now, he's choosing to be in Portland with us, which makes us pretty grateful. He's got a passion for things that have almost killed him: his car, his bike, his job. Grovemade really wouldn't function without the driving force of Brodie! He's like our engine. Brodie helps get the product from our brains to your hands, all while designing his next tattoo or clever case idea.

I'M GOOD AT: SURVIVING

Dixie Griffin

Dixie's an independent spirit chock full of the dignified class of the Midwest, though she's laid claim to having been raised by a pack of gray wolves. A former theater geek who loved it too much to do it for real, you can find Dixie splitting her time between the customer experience side of things, as well as on the shores of production manufacturing. In all, Dixie's a true DIY'er who loves to cook (gumbo is her go-to), sew, papier-mâché, and sing. She also hates to drive.

SPIRIT ANMAL: TURTLE

Lydia Segura

Lydia is a proponent of the ancient Greek philosophy of “Both”, rather than “Either/Or”—ice cream, for example, is something she enjoys in a very equal-opportunity sort of way. She works in the shop at Grovemade, assisting in all levels of production and operations. Again, “Both,” not “Either/Or.” In her spare time, you can find her gardening, as long as that garden is outside. Her heart melts at the thought of fondue, which is a joke she imagines telling her friends at culinary school someday.
