Tell us a little bit about yourself. What's your name, where are you from and what do you do?
Hey there! My name is Wes Horbatuck and I hail from Avon, Connecticut.  While I will always be rooted to the Connecticut shoreline, my eternal wanderlust and personal growth took my adventures to NYC and then to San Diego where I currently reside. San Diego has allowed me to fully explore my passions where I co-founded a lifestyle brand, Scrimshaw Collective, with my east coast comrade and fellow Matador Ambassador, Will Cruthers.

What is Scrimshaw Collective all about?
Scrimshaw Collective is a lifestyle brand about where the sand meets the street. We are storytellers, sharing bicoastal experiences of our own and those of inspirational creatives. Scrimshaw Collective is dedicated to the music we love, the world of surfing, influential artists, and an endless wanderlust.

What gets you out of bed every morning?
Ha, this definitely needs to be broken down into what I think about, to get out of bed and what physically wakes me up.  The internal drive to see what life has to offer through connections and experiences is what I try to think about while waking up, but physically, my body yearns for espresso, surfing, sunshine and food all at the same time, the minute I open my eyes.

What's a typical day like for you?
A typical day for me is making sure my day is anything BUT typical. That being said, waking up and making a cappuccino while checking the surf report (love being part of the dawn patrol) and eating a hearty breakfast (normally a breakfast burrito) is a common theme to my days, which I can definitely get behind.  The rest of the day normally takes the form of working on Scrimshaw at coffee shops, listening to as much music as humanly possible and engaging my body in physical and mental challenges.  Whether it’s through boxing, reading, grabbing an evening surf, golfing, or drinking whiskey and beer with friends, no good day is complete without tapping into activities that makes me feel alive.

What's next?

I want to explore and expand both my brand and myself.  Scrimshaw Collective has a massive year ahead collaborating with growing and like-minded companies, like Matador, and creating content through images and stories that excite people to make their own adventures. I am finding my vision through my multiple lenses, and as my ideas grow, so do my passions.  Not only will I be travelling a lot this year, but I am also starting an active and aquatic based clothing line called, Driftline.  It is going to be an exciting year!
