How We Got Started

I grew up on Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii and spent my days playing on the beach watching airplanes take off on the reef runway at Honolulu International Airport. Seeing the different types of aircraft and their liveries (branding) gave me an instant love for aviation and graphic arts.

In adulthood I merged those two passions, becoming a graphic designer for an airline. Being around the aviation industry, I was a little unhappy with the options that were out there for aviation related apparel and accessories for the aviation enthusiast, so I decided to design the type of things I'd like to see, wear, and use. Six Miles Up was born as a passion project to help share these same styles and designs with you, the aviation employee or enthusiast.
