I'm Brian. I love creating & making out of my small shop in Vancouver, BC. I have been working with metal for 17 years. When I was 15, I bought my first CNC Milling Machine and started machining small metal parts for bikes, cars and airplanes. Later, I went on to gain experience as a draftsman, machinist, and gear cutter in several shops around Vancouver. My skills as a machinist, love of metal and precision drive me to create things and share them with you.

The idea for Shiny Stubby Fat Pen came to me last year after trying to figure out what I should do with some left over aluminum. Since then, I have introduced brass and copper into the mix, launched three successful Kickstarters and shipped out hundreds of pens all over the world.   

Although the pen is currently my biggest project, I have a lot of ideas which I intend on sharing with you in the near future. Stay tuned and happy writing!
