About This

I first discovered South Tempe back in 2005 by way of a bike ride.  

My girlfriend (now wife) was a student at ASU's Graphic Design department, and had just moved into a small home on the Tempe / Chandler border.  She would often come home late, and to pass the time, I would ride my bike around the neighborhoods tucked beneath the tall trees on either side of Warner Road. I was in love with her, and I was in love with South Tempe. I put my home up for sale, and a few months later, I was a proud homeowner in 85284. My girlfriend and I were married that same year. 

You might see us today at Crepe BarSeattle Espresso, or at the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. We're the family of 4 daughters and a whole parade of bikes. 

Why T-shirts? 

I created these shirts to show our South Tempe pride and to encourage other neighbors to hop on their bikes to explore their community.
