Drew is a childhood friend of mine, we met in 1st grade. We used to play Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers together in the playground at our elementary school! We recently reconnected when we were looking for some help in the GPC shop a couple of months ago. Drew has been following what we do on Facebook and was eager to jump at the opportunity to be involved in GPC. He's been doing great, learning the 'ways of Goulet' very quickly, and now we're ready to officially introduce him as a member on our staff since he'll be more involved in our operations.
Drew is our shipping manager, he is responsible for making sure all of the great products you love come in and go out like they should. He's my right-hand man, working by my side. He'll be sending all of the outgoing shipping emails from now on, so I wanted to let you know that he's not just 'some guy', but a valued part of our team.
Drew also likes to draw, he's been a doodler ever since I can remember. So the adoption of the life of a fountain pen lover has been very natural and exciting for him! I asked him to do a couple of drawings for the blog here, so he did some using his Lamy Al-Star Ocean Blue (the pen in his pocket!) with a 1.1mm italic nib and Iroshizuku Kon-Peki on a Rhodia 80g dotpad.
Hopefully you can all embrace Drew as a part of our team. I've been working hard with him since he started to make sure he is doing everything to my standards. He's going to work by my side for a long time, to make sure he knows his stuff inside and out.
Rachel and I have been working like crazy over the last couple of years, and it's great to have some help. It's helping us to have a much better work-life balance, and also to focus on things like taking better product pictures, making more videos, and learning the use of our products better. It's also critical to have Drew help us more as Rachel gets closer to her due date for little Goulet #2 in December! It's an exciting time for us at GPC, and we plan to share the excitement with you as it unfolds (at least the good parts, haha!).
