How many jobs have you had in the outdoor industry?
Almost all of the jobs I’ve had have been in the outdoor industry. They’ve ranged from more “out in the field” jobs, like being an assistant program director at a summer camp, to more standard retail jobs.
What do you do when you're not working?
In addition to working full time at Rumpl, I’m also a full time Masters of Fine Arts graduate student at Portland State University. When I’m not working or writing/reading, I really just love to be outside. My partner and I have only been in Portland for about a year, and I feel like we’re just getting to find the gems of the Pacific Northwest. I also am a huge movie and music buff and spend a lot of my free time diving into those.
What’s your favorite Rumpl product?
I absolutely love the NanoLoft® Puffy Blanket. It’s warm, compact, and the face fabric has a great feel to it. I’ve found that it makes the transition from the couch to the campfire really smoothly and is super durable.
What are you reading right now?
This summer I’ve been able to dive into some really amazing books, includingThe Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson,Whereas by Layli Long Soldier, and a re-read ofWatchmen by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons.
What album are you listening to right now?
Man, 2020 has been an amazing year for music - currently I’ve got the new Khruangbin, Lianne Le Havas, Drain, and Phoebe Bridgers records in near constant rotation. Another huge spotlight of 2020 for me has been Hiroshi Yoshimura’s “Green,” which is just a marvelous ambient work.
