Hi, I'm Tony. I've been a designer for over 13 years. For the last 7+ years I have been an artist/designer for a top t-shirt company and love every part of it. I'm also a big hockey fan (Go Sharks & Golden Knights!) I've been watching for over 30 years - 10 of those years playing between the pipes. I geek out over all things goalies and their equipment. As the most unique and fashionable position in all of sports, it feelsĀ a bitĀ underserved in the apparel department. I started Backstop as a way to merge my two passions - designing and goalies. I may not be able to call the crease my home anymore, but I can make sure you look good doing so!

Thank you for stopping by and don't hesitate to reach out and say "hi."
