The passion to design came at a very early age. From drawing cars, shoes, clothes, and even dream houses. I loved putting my ideas on paper.
At the same time, I dabbled in every sport I could get my hands on growing up. From youth rugby to tennis, high school basketball to collegiate volleyball, then marathons and triathlon in more recent times. It was assumed my career path would lead to something sports-related. And it did.
For 15 years I taught Phys. Ed. and coached at international schools in three different countries in Asia. It was during these years that I harnessed and rediscovered the desire to design, from PE uniforms to sports and team gear.
It was when Emperor CrossFit in 2013 was conceived in Shanghai that things took a serious turn, from creating our box's gear to testing products on our members. I loved having free reign with the materials and styles, while the constant inspiration and support of our members only pushed me to seriously look into creating something I only dreamed about as a kid.
A family decision in 2015 to move to the US after 38 years overseas was the opportunity to truly scratch this itch. Being involved in multiple sports, disciplines and organizations (Scholarfit), I wanted to create a brand that catered to the hybrid athlete while giving back to those who aren't as fortunate with those resources. The one who did a bit of everything, the jack of all trades. Thus, HollowRock was born.
HollowRock is the story of a boy who's lifelong relationship with sports and fitness, and the gear you wear playing them, formed an even deeper love. A brand on a mission to do one thing: empowering movements in yourself and others.
We look forward to seeing you become a part of the HollowRock movement.
