Hi, I’m Amir and welcome to the roost – my little place to share my ideas, experiences, and experiments. I’ve been a park ranger, guide, and outfitter and now I’m using my experience to increase the representation of minorities by addressing the barriers that hold us back.

Among the many little bits here, lives Icterid Designs, a range of outdoor products driven by my enjoyment of the outdoors. At the core are simple products based on traditional techniques and an emphasis on accessibility, inclusion, and sustainability. I make everything in my little workspace in Duluth, Minnesota. Future plans include an adaptive alteration service as well as comprehensive gear repair and up/recycling.

All of my work is centered on self reliance and education, if you have any questions about my writing and work, please reach out using the form below, I love sharing what I can. Custom work, alteration, and repair inquiries are always welcome!

Thanks for visiting,
