Grasshoppa is originally from Chino, California but currently resides in Apple Valley, California. He started his glass blowing journey doing furnace work AKA “soft glass” in 2007 for a college course and then got a factory job until 2011 when the factory was shut down. He was able to make friends in glass and they taught him Boro. Next, he bought a Torch and started blowing glass for his friend’s company and the rest is history.
