What is your current role and who do you work for?
Warehouse Manager at Keen Dist Ltd
What is it that you actually do? / What takes up a majority of your work time?
Manage a team and make sure the warehouse runs as smoothly as possible. The most time consuming part of my job is keeping the team on track and motivated as well as overseeing the logistics of incoming and outgoing shipments.

I worked for Polar Skate Co. as a warehouse operative from 2014 and then became warehouse manager for Keen in 2020.
What’s the best thing about your job?
Getting to work for something I’m truly passionate for. Working with friends. Being able to bring my dog to work and of course having a skatepark at your workplace is always a bonus.
What’s the worst thing about your job?
I’ve been working for Keen for 8 years now and haven’t come across anything yet!
Any advice for skateboarders out there who want to pursue your line of work?
Show up, work hard, show initiative, and remember the first rule…'Don’t bullshit a bullshitter'.
