Ardor & Forge literally means passion & creation. There are several things I'm very passionate about: faith, family, nature and watches. God instilled in me an unquenchable drive to create. My mind and hands are always active. Over the course of my career, I've designed products and graphics, and have created illustrations for many well known brands (such as Gilson Snow, Hershey Co., Hunter Fan, Kenroy Lighting, Urban Outfitters, Ridgid, GNC, Penn State, and others). Ardor & Forge channels all of my passions and experiences to deliver fresh, inspired watch designs for guys who, like me, are constantly awestruck by nature and are willing to fight to preserve it.
"Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established." – Proverbs 16:3
In our beautiful mountain town of Tyrone, Pennsylvania, Ardor & Forge was born in early 2017. We are committed to designing high quality products for guys who want to be prepared for any situation that arises. We have a strong desire to build a community who shares our love for the outdoors, and our ultimate goal is to ensure future generations have the same opportunities to enjoy the amazing natural areas God has entrusted to us by supporting conservation efforts locally and around the world.
