What is your story of coming to work for Charles River? I came to Charles River Canoe and Kayak after finishing a marketing and development position in New Hampshire, and wanted to break into the outdoor recreation market.
Tell us a little more about yourself in terms of your outdoor experience: Boating has always been a favorite hobby of mine. I learned how to canoe and kayak on the Charles in my youth and have broaden my experience to include sailing and rowing. Currently I play ultimate competitively with several club teams in NH and the Boston area. I’m very outgoing and will do anything outside as long as it involves friends and fun.
If you could get a free plane, bus, or train ticket anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? Dubai, great big city, lots of people, lots of fun.
What do you do on rainy days? I read a good book and develop websites.
Who is your hero and why? Tony Stark, he’s brilliant and smart.
Never forget… we have been blogging for years!
John Pyne, the manager at the Kendall Ice Rink, has been blogging up to the minute details about the goings on of the rink for years! Long before we had our facebook in ship shape, or our twitter tweeting away, John was keeping his patrons informed about what was happening at the rink. Since its years of info, and full of fun photos, we are going to keep it live on the web, however this will be the new spot for fun Kendall Rink info. Check it out here: http://skatekendall.blogspot.com/
It’s been much discussed and often thought about as to whether or not we should start blogging as a company. There is a fine line between good info the is helpful, and too much info, just for the sake of talking. We wanted to be really careful not to cross that line. The next question was “What the heck do we write about?” and “Will this be interesting to anyone?”
We have some fun ideas up our sleeves for 2012 and hope that you will follow along with us on this blogging adventure!
