What’s up everyone?
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Geoff Consolacion and I hail from the action sports haven known as Oceanside, CA. I’ll be joining this talented group of interns as class 9 for BambooSk8. From a very young age, I can remember being an ambitious little kid with big goals and dreams. It never mattered what it was. If it was something I wanted to do, I was going to make damn sure that I was going to be great at it. A lot of that competitive spirit and energy was channeled through school and sports and it wasn’t until I was about 11 years old when I was introduced to something that would forever change me.
My cousin gave me a World Industries Rob ‘Sluggo’ Boyce skateboard. Bom chika wah wah! It was love at first. Skating consumed almost every part of my free time. I spent hours on end learning new tricks and trying to put together little videos. For the longest time I was either doing school work, playing baseball (another great passion of mine), or skating.
Fast forward a few more years. I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Finance in May 2010. I spent a couple wonderful months traveling through the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand. Like many of the other interns, the search for full time employment, especially in the financial services industry, was less than ideal. Even though that sheepskin diploma makes wonderful wall décor, it hasn’t quite yet opened any doors for me.
I was very fortunate to have found BambooSk8 and I was very attracted to their mission. It’s business related, involves skateboarding, and is environmentally conscious. It’s a grand slam. I will be focusing much of my time on Public Relations and Social Media, but I will also be lending my voice and opinions to the Marketing and Sales teams. I feel that the hard work and effort I plan to put worth will make this a wonderful learning experience. Having the intent of being a business owner someday, I plan on taking advantage of this invaluable opportunity to motivate me towards my future goals.
and that’s a little about me.
