Cabal Crafted Team
Cabal studio has been made up of a tightly knit team eager to connect with people and enthused to make craft and design accessible to everyone interested.
Intern / Project Management
You'll know him when you see him. Tony (Ynot) Nguyen is a full-time student of dad-level jokes who sometimes reads about Marketing at his host institution, the University of California Riverside. Immersed in the world of fashion for his entire life, Tony has experience reselling secondhand designer products at the Los Angeles consignment store Horror Vacuo.
Currently, Tony is helping to manage projects at Cabal studio - specifically working to broaden Cabal's network and stockists to the OC region.

JOHN PAUL NGO
Intern / Craft / Traditional Tool Preservation
He's a bit hard to notice sometimes, but John Paul Ngo can often be found sporting a turtleneck of some sort with an unintentional goal of emulating video game producer and icon Hideo Kojima. He's got a long experience as a craftsperson with more than half a decade of experience as a character designer who always strove to make deep and meaningful creations as a way of preserving his interpretation of the people and world around him with a bit of artistic flair.
Currently, John sometimes acts as the person (and snarky voice) behind the lens of the Cabal Crafted instagram stories and helps make captions for product posts.
What to ask John when you see him:
Can you teach me some Japanese Yakuza terminology?
When's the last time you slept?
Intern / Media
Sometimes he's high energy sometimes he's a sloth but Justin Chan is full time lame-o. He's got 4 years of experience behind a camera in the form of portraiture and editorial photography with a focus of connecting photos to emotions. He has worked with people near and far including youtubers, models, and artistic creatives all over the west coast, but primarily in Los Angeles.
Currently, Justin helps with the production of media in the form of photos and video which help promote Cabal Crafted in a way which is true to the ethos.
What to ask Justin when you see him:
Where do you find your memes?
