Meet the Founder
Deep down inside, we don’t seek the meaning of life, but the experience of being alive.

My goal is to create an authentic, intelligent aesthetic that inspires, whether I am cooking dinner for friends, building a rock garden or designing a line of clothing.
Paskho is deeply personal to me.
One night several years ago, I was sitting on a beach, the waves lit by the moon and a sky so full of stars that it seemed to be the projection of the sand I was sitting in. Instead of being inspired by what was around me, I was trapped by thoughts that kept bouncing off the same walls, over and over again.
My eyes were looking out, but my mind was stuck inside.
My daily routine had muted my passion for new encounters and experiences.
After a few weeks in the Ansel Adams wilderness in Yosemite National Park, watching the sun light up the ice crystals that had formed on the ground, the dusk bringing calm to the landscape, I came home to New York City inspired to create a flow that came from me. A line of clothing that helps simplify, unclutter…clothing that we can truly live in.
This is Paskho.
"At Paskho, we never compromise on quality craftsmanship, eco-friendly fabrics, and fair labor."
Why is it that skiers, trekkers and triathletes always get the best of what’s new in clothing? Their apparel is strong and light, water-resistant, near indestructible, resistant to sweat and bacteria, flexible, multifunctional, comfortable for a long haul.
I want to take all of the technology from fitness, backpacking and adventure clothing and use that to create clothing that allows us to explore, wherever our passions lead us - urban, country, beach, mountain, and then back to the plane, home, street, studio.
Imagine going from your plane to a hike to dinner with one completely comfortable, utterly beautiful pant, making it easier to focus on the journey itself.
I believe design has the capacity to touch us deeply, to simplify life and to please, which therefore allows us to elevate emotionally and spiritually. Great design isn’t just a question of pretty aesthetics; it’s really a question of how we want to live our lives.
