Every kite I create is the result of three decades spent obsessing over the details. It's the product of countless hours spent learning materials characteristics, and refining construction techniques and performance. My goal is to craft kites that delight the senses. Not only in the sky, but in the hand as well. I strive to design and construct my kites in a way that encourages people to touch and explore the details, from the cut and finishing of the sail, to the innovative and unique framing.
I've done business under a few different banners over the years, beginning as Aerie Kiteworks in 1991. I closed Aerie in '97 to take a job with Avia Sport Composites, and Shanti Kites took on the Aerie Kiteworks line. In 1999, I got the bug and started making kites again as Blue Moon Kites.
