Stuart Alden

Ink Lounge my story
Owner

I define myself as a creative explorer as I am continually seeking new experiences and knowledge and find tangible ways to apply my skills to projects that are meaningful to myself and the community around me. The commercial components of the studio also enable me to fund initiatives that I call Good Ink Missions where I apply my creative skills to give actions to my words.

I am privileged to do what I do, which inspires me to find people and projects to support.
