Michael, also known as Tall, lives in Nairobi, Kenya and is very creative.  He is the oldest in his family and both of his parents are deceased. One day many years ago, Tall needed a pair of jeans but didn't have money to buy them. Therefore, he decided he would learn how to make them. He spent many hours watching a friend sew and would borrow his sewing machine whenever the friend took a break. Through this process, his skills grew and he learned to sew. Tall was one of the 3 original artisans that GORP started with.  Most of the products Tall makes are his own original designs.
