If there's one thing we've learned since opening Silver Hand Co., it's that nothing can happen without a team. And lucky for us, although our team is small, it is dedicated, hard working, and flat-out awesome.
No one better exemplifies this than our friend Jeremy Schmitz, head of production. He's an enthusiastic movie buff, creative community thinker and immediately makes anyone feel welcome.
We first met Jeremy several years ago in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Actually, he's the guy that introduced us. Silver Hand Co. really wouldn't exist if that historic moment hadn't occurred!
Flash forward a few years, and he's now one of the most creative thinkers on our team and is scheming some ideas that we'll be releasing online soon. He's an integral part of Silver Hand and we're stoked to have him on board!
We did a short Q & A with Jeremy, so you can get to know this movie/coffee/leather buff a little better.

Where are you from? Right here in Denver, Colorado!
What is your favorite movie? Anything from Wes Anderson. Probably Rushmore right now.
Favorite movie to quote? Step Brothers. No, wait - Pineapple Express actually. "I thought hurricane season was over!" immediately begins laughing
Favorite leather product to make? Probably the rucksack, because of all the random steps involved. Once you're finished - yeah, it's challenging, but realizing how much work and detail goes into it pretty amazing.
Favorite pour-over method? V60. Honestly, I think it gives you the biggest margin for error, but also the most control. I prefer it over something like a beehive with smaller holes, because it's harder to dial and you have less control. I like the ability to really dial something in.
Favorite cocktail? Sweet vermouth with a twist. Simple. It's the best way to kick off a night with a simple drink, and vermouth kinda opens you up to any drink after that - Manhattan, gin... gives you possibilities.
Leave us with a movie quote! "The secret, I don't know... I guess you've just gotta find something you love to do and then... do it for the rest of your life." - Rushmore
