I began working within the action sports industry from the ground level in 2002. I was a warehouse clerk at Black Box, Dist and was quickly moved into a shipping managerial role. Fast forward 3 years and I was promoted to Inside Domestic Sales, and would later take on Key Accounts. I worked with Black Box until 2011. Later that year I continued working within action sport by taking a similar Key Accounts and Domestic Sales position with Tum Yeto, Inc. I held that post until November 2015 when I decided to move back to my home state of Alabama.
