My name is Richard Covach and I am an experienced skateboard film maker. I have released full-length skate videos in both the Raleigh area of North Carolina and also in San Diego and have organized premiere events for each, as well as marketing them on social media. These projects are each then produced both for web and for DVD. I also have more than a decade of experience working in and then managing my local skate shop. I was heavily involved in selecting brands and products that would sell well in our skate shop and was responsible for getting these items into the shop's inventory as quickly as possible. I have a very thorough knowledge of brands and trends within both the hardgoods and softgoods sectors of the market, and have sold these items directly to customers in face to face sales for almost a decade and a half. I would love to continue my career in skateboarding by joining a dedicated team of like-minded individuals, and because of my expertise both in retail and in content creation, I believe I would an excellent addition.
