Parker M. is the Midwest Regional Sales Manager with Goldstar.
My very first job as a kid was running a boat dock at the local lake, where I rented out canoes and paddle boats, and from time to time had to fish out inebriated patrons from the water. Music has always been a big part of my life (see karaoke answer below), and in my younger days I was the lead singer of a cover band.
Some of my favorite hobbies outside of work include tennis, scuba, and playing music–classical and jazz trumpet and bluegrass banjo, to be specific. I enjoy cooking, too, but would prefer to have a celebrity chef like Emeril Lagasse cook for me.
I’ve worked on both the distributor and supplier side of this business. Coolest thing about my job is helping people–it’s what I love most. (The pens are pretty cool, too!) Right now, my go-to Goldstar pen is the Ellipse Softy (item #LNS). The stylus on that puppy works beautifully on my iPad.

Too many to list… but if I had to choose one, it would be Seabiscuit. I’m all about the underdog. 🙂
