With his experience in the optical business spanning 20+ years you could say James is a book of optical knowledge. He not only brings his dispensing expertise to the table but also a background in eyewear design and production. Often known for his “German-like” precision James can nail a fit a hundred yards away. He is also a passionate motorcyclist and former bike technician. So whether you need style advice on cutting edge eyewear or need to know how to tune the carburetors on your old Ducati, James is your man!
Rhea comes to us from New Orleans and brings over eight years of optical experience. She is a master of tint and mirror selection, creating lenses that make us all jealous. A competitive cyclist, she spends her weekends racing and her weekdays working on her photography. (Somehow she finds time to help us out a few days a week!)

Phil is a recent arrival in Los Angeles, coming to us from Kansas City. He brings over five years of optical experience and a master eye for style. When he’s not at Gogosha, Phil works as the Fashion Editor of LaPalme Magazine and continues his work as the creator of HK|StyleGroup. His daily exploration of LA and all it has to offer bring a bright light and energy to Gogosha. (AND he can cook!)
