Have a seat and join us in the wild-ish West!
Wild Westish is an attitude made up of optimism, adventure, exploration, discovery, whiskey and dirt, filtered through a love of quality and a desire to do things right.
Rooted in the geographic Western US, and in the notion that not much should be taken too seriously, we present here a collection of ideas, maps, drawings, philosophizing and who-knows-what.
The primary goal is to be outside, to find solitude, to see, listen and get dirty. And also to have cocktails.
The team at Wild Westish prioritizes outdoor living. A typical weekend includes a selection of camping, fly fishing, trail running, mountain biking, camp jumping, dog hiking, baking, drawing, and/or wood-working. We are currently working towards making weekends happen every day.
The Wild Westish dogs are always up for guarding, chasing, barking and begging. They are at home chasing rabbits, foraging on deer carcasses, looking for muskrats and sleeping on memory foam dog beds.
We love everything about the outdoors, as in the wild and wild-ish Great Outdoors! And if we don’t love it, we still love that it exists. There are wild animals, fresh air, clouds, trees, plants, cacti, flowers, berries, mushrooms, vastness, rocks of all shapes and sizes, dirt in different colors and textures, heat, cold, weather, wind, mountains, deserts, canyons, cliffs, oceans, rivers, streams, snowfields, salt flats, sand dunes, old shacks, abandoned mines, ruins, petrified wood, shells, views, trails, treasures, antlers, solitude, stars, sunsets, sunrises, the moon, space for the dogs to roam, challenges and like-minded people. This is where all the good stuff happens, and we can only scratch the surface… It is the place where the mind is quiet and the soul is full.
If you can’t get really out, step to your patio/porch/deck/stoop and enjoy your coffee or cocktail without a ceiling. Sometimes you have to take what you can get.
We make things!
I am available for freelance design, branding and writing projects. See my design portfolio. RK makes beautiful things out of wood, including cutting boards, cocktail boards, salt scoops, coffee scoops, salad servers, and fishing nets. If you want something custom, just let us know!
