about us


hey friends! sami + nathan here.

We're ridiculously passionate about travel, camping and gathering experiences opposed to things. We live in Redondo Beach, CA and have been together for almost 11 years - this year we’re getting married! We've been actively camping and off-roading for three years and have developed a new love for the land that inspired us to create artwork and fun items inspired by adventure. Each item we sell has been drawn + designed by yours truly.

TUT also a blog where I share our travels and tidbits of our very unexpected life. We have an unexpected client base, from Hybrid Overland to Makers Mess. I adore working with new folks who are also out on creative adventures and am excited to work with so many more!

Born: Portland, Oregon // Favorite Food: Boba // Favorite Color: Mustard Yellow

I come from a creative background of visual communications, styling, PR + marketing and graphic design, I love to create more than anything and use my hands, so sketching and drawing has always been a favorite medium of mine. The outdoors are very special to me which I love incorporating into all of my work! It keeps things unexpected around here.

Born: Vietnam // Favorite Food: Anything (jk - currently grilled fish) // Favorite Color: Lime Green

My background is actually Law Enforcement based - ever since I was little I’ve wanted to be a police officer. When I came to America, I made that my American Dream. I’m the logistics and customer service guy around here who also lends a creative eye and keeps my crazy other half on track. I love being outside and exploring back roads that no one has ever been on before… and I’m always pushing Sami to go places she’s never been before!
