Before establishing Humboldt Outfitters, a retail and custom clothing store, Neyra repaired exercise equipment for local area gyms while working his way through college. After receiving high feedback from people’s needs, he began to consult and sell gym equipment. After many transitions in the focus of his career, Humboldt Outfitters was born. Ten years later, David now designs his own logos and has become a big part of the community as a screen printing and embroidery consultant for teams, business owners, and the private sector.
