I'm currently the Purchasing and Sourcing Manager at Baker Boys Distribution; home to Deathwish Skateboards, Shake Junt Accessories, Baker Skateboards, Birdhouse Skateboards, Heroin Skateboards, Ashbury Eyewear, Illegal Civilization, ABC Hat Co., Volume 4 Apparel and Death Lens/Digital (previous clients/brands include Palace Skateboards and Brigada Eyewear).

In May 2015, I was appointed Brand Manager of Deathwish Skateboards overseeing and maintaining the brand inside and out, which I am still running.

My humble beginnings began after graduating from San Diego State University in 2006. I had the unique opportunity to work in the music industry for the independent label Up Above Records. For over four years I grew within the organization, and with guidance, gained valuable hands-on experience in all aspects of running a business. I built an excellent rapport with everyone I worked with, including the Up Above Records President & staff, artists, distributors, vendors, and buyers.

Having worked with a variety of people at different management levels both inside and outside of the company, I have developed my strengths in management, communication and problem solving. From sales and marketing, to accounting and logistics, production and budget management, I have had my hands in everything, and look forward to new experiences, as well.
