What unique element and/or task do you bring to the store?
Jack of all trades, I guess. Men’s buyer, music tyrant, technology adoption advocate (imagine eliminating the fax altogether!).


What do you do on your days off?
Spend time with my wife (Molly) and my boys (aka, the Dudes). My personal passions are mountain biking and motor sports… Just about anything with wheels will suffice.
 

What do you like best about working at Weekends?
Relationships with people. It applies to our customers and our vendors. We love to know who sells and supplies our products so that we can convey the story to our customers.


What's your favorite clothing line and/or style? Why?
Tough to say… Probably our men’s shirt line called Culturata. Not only do I love the fit, fabric and freshness they bring to men’s shirting, but they are the kind of folks you want to do business with – husband and wife team, shirts made in Italy in Jacque’s family’s factory, with 8 dedicated ladies responsible for the handmade TLC Culturata deserves.



What's your favorite part of working on the Pearl St Mall?
Seasons! The Downtown Boulder, Inc. staff make sure the leaves are raked, the snow is plowed and the bulbs are planted. It makes for a family-oriented utopia no matter the season.
