Everyone has a story to tell, but not everyone has a chance to tell that story.  Made Fresh was first dreamt up by director Brad Watanabe as a result of losing his grandfather to a medical complication following a “routine” surgery.  He never had a chance to capture the story of his pineapple growing, golf club swinging, fisherman of a grandfather before he passed away.  As a result, documenting untold stories of people who might never have their stories told became a personal passion of his, and Made Fresh was born.

This is a series devoted to those who are making fresh and amazing things or doing traditional things in a fresh and innovative way.  If you know any makers that need to have their story told, please email us with a brief synopsis of the fresh maker you have in mind.  madefresh@beradstudio.com

Made Fresh: Mylen Yamamoto + Cropsticks

Entrepreneurs don’t wait for opportunities to find them, they seek out success and double down when inspiration hits. Hometown hero Mylen Yamamoto never set out to be an entrepreneur, but when the Cropsticks lightbulb went on, there was no stopping her.

Great inventors often have an innovative “What”, the best creators pair that with an intrinsic “Why”. That magical combination is what makes Cropsticks more than just a helpful and thoughtful product, but a conscious creation for a greener future.
