The Long

I was born and raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Spending the past few years learning the craft, I’ve worked with master craftspeople from across the country and spent countless hours making mistakes on my own. Those mistakes have turned into designs that I’ve sold locally and worldwide.

Over the years I’ve worked in a number of trades from plumbing to skatepark building from coast to coast. This experience has taught me the value of tough goods and quality material that’s built to last. My partner Robyn and I recently returned home to grow Phee’s Original Goods in the community where it all began, beautiful Cape Breton Island.
