I have been working on various sales floors of the outdoor industry (Helly Hansen, The North Face, and Patagonia) for multiple years. During this time I have learned everything I can about waterproof membranes, insulation, and why products are designed they way are. Being on the retail floor has allowed me to learn from the ground level and develop unique perspectives on products because of my college degree. I continually strive to improve my knowledge of product in the outdoor industry, whether it is in apparel or equipment. I have a in depth understanding of the retail side of things and how stores can most efficiently be ran. I am prepared to help develop a product or company by using my understanding and knowledge of the retail business.
