The Founder

Alex Traxler

Favorite Quote: "To be early is to be on time."
I started Griffen Hollow Studio after making the leap from the customer service industry. Combining my affinity for woodworking, problem solving and eco-friendly practices Griffen Hollow Studio was born. 
My ultimate goal is to help the awareness around branding grow through products that carry a purpose and impact over many areas. My focus is on the conversations surrounding sustainability and conservation.
During the pandemic I made the jump from GHS to being an educator tasked with helping bring back Career Technical Education to public middle schools. Since 2020 I have had success in modernizing "shop class."
As well as running the business, creating for clients and family time I am a proud board member of Dude Charity here in Central Ohio.
I founded GHS in 2012. GHS is named after my Papaw and his partner Laurie's award winning family hardwood tree farm, Griffen Hollow Hardwoods in Lewis County, Kentucky.
