Roth oversees both business operations and creative design development for Rothy’s. Roth studied Japanese at the University of Southern California and holds a Bachelor’s degree in East Asian Studies from Boston University. Prior to co-founding Rothy’s, his time in Japan helped shape his passion for sustainability and his penchant for clean, modern design. This inspired him to co-found Hedge Gallery, which he ran for over a decade before co-founding Rothy’s alongside Stephen Hawthornthwaite. Roth is also the co-founder of FOG Art + Design Fair in San Francisco.
