The Family




Alex Morton founded Freshly Dirty in the spring of 2016 on a dusty back porch in Redkey, IN. Later that same year at the World Yoyo Contest, he began to build the brand from the ground up with loyal business partner Arthur Foley, and together they created a team of misfits to bring the lifestyle of Freshly Dirty to the yoyo community. Always looking to inspire others, you can often catch Alex at contests around the midwest, spending time with family, or serving as a leader at elementary after-school programs.    







Our resident engineer, Arthur Foley linked up with Alex at the 2016 World Yoyo Contest to help transform Freshly Dirty into what it is today. Alex may describe him as the CAD wizard, but a good magician never reveals his secrets. Arthur grew up in Atlanta but now lives in the Washington DC area. When he's not designing yoyos you can find him out on the tennis courts slicing up some drop shots.






If you happen to find yourself on the shimmering coast of Saint Joseph, Michigan, there’s the possibility that you may find a wild Wes Shuck. Indigenous to the beach, Wes is rarely seen without a yoyo in his hand, when he doesn't you can often see him skating or roaming about. In the heat of the day or the still of the night, he never fails at whipping out some bizarre tricks. Wes takes a new approach to flow generation, and one look at his unique take on what a yoyo can do will inspire you to get up and throw.  



A bit of a bookworm, Anthony DeSana is pursuing a PhD in physiology at the University of Kentucky. If you have the time, ask him about his research. He will talk for far too long about it. Anthony plays yoyo with two things in mind: fun and relaxation. He plays 1A, but recently, he has been exploring the more technical side of 5A. While not normally a fan of cats, Anthony does enjoy the one in this picture.

Nate Wade is our resident art man. Most of the engravings that you've seen on our yoyos come straight from the hands of Nate Wade. He is a wizard with whatever medium you throw at him, and, on top of that, he's a pretty swell guy. He regularly attends the New York yoyo club, so be sure to say hey next time you see him. 


You might find our Orlando performer, Noel Kunz, slinging some 5A around the theme parks on any given day of the week. Noel is also a drummer, allowing his musical roots to flow and to be felt through his yoyoing. Next time you see him playing a gig, whether with a yoyo or with drumsticks in hand, be sure to come and say hello.

Keeping Minnesota cool, is none other than Ray Lessard. He's a soft spoken guy with big tricks that talk for him. Ray regularly attends contests throughout the midwest. His tricks are innovative, flowy, and fun, and we are always chomping at the bit to see what new stuff this guy brings to the table.

From across the pond, Joe Davies, is our most recent addition to the Freshly Dirty Family. Just to give you an idea of how cool Joe is: one time, Anthony asked how to make the best tea, so Joe not only told him how to do it, but sent out a package to the US of his favorite tea. It's Yorkshire Gold if you were wondering.
