How long have you worked at Oskar Blues?
Officially since the end of May

And what do you do here?

I'm the Merchandise guy in Brevard, NC. I put the clothes on your back, glasses in hand, and all the fun swag stuff everybody wants and needs.

How about when you're not working?

Hanging with my wife and our black lab indoors and outdoors. Going hiking, camping, running, cooking, want to include more skiing and biking in my life, adventurous eating, playing games, watching movies, making the occasional cheese. Drinking good beer and hanging with friends around a campfire. Exploring new places, traveling and trying new things.

Music. Who's your favorite band?
I don't like this question...there is always something I can find to like about music. From Zappa to Chopin to Thievery Corp to Tribe Called Quest to Slim Cessna. But if I have to choose one or two I would say always David Byrne and most recently Dr. Dog

How about your first bike?
Its been awhile and I really want to get into mountain biking...but my first bike as a child was some Red bike with this fat top tube.. Not quite Pee Wee Hermans but close enough...now I need to find out what it was, thanks!

Perhaps most importantly, what is your favorite Oskar Blues beer?
G'Knight

Anything we forgot to ask?

Do you talk to yourself? What's your favorite thing to cook? What diabolical plans are you hatching? How much do you love Sriracha? Being the new merch guy, do you like being enclosed in merch room hidden away from society and do you relate to phantom of the opera or Quasimodo? Where's my stapler!?!? Are you the gatekeeper? Stop. Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see. I mean so many questions that could be asked...ask away!
