BEHIND THE BRAND.

Here at RPMWEST we believe in making the best products, embracing the spirit of adventure, and bringing people together. Our whole team is doing their best to embody these values on a daily basis – allow us to introduce ourselves.

MANUEL - FOUNDER

Manuel’s morning routine consists of a cold shower, too much orange juice, and a carefully-constructed fruit parfait. While he tries to deny it, he’s starting to get old – reading & hiking are quickly becoming some of his favorite pastimes.

Also, bet you weren’t picturing the man to the left when you read the name Manuel, huh? That's his European/German heritage ;)

MEGAN - CUSTOMER SERVICE

Megan somehow likes vegan food as much as she likes cupcakes. She believes in dancing as therapy and was once held for questioning in Singapore (though she claims she never broke the law). Oh, and don’t challenge her to a bike race – she’s a six-time national cycling champion.

MARK - PHOTOGRAPHY

Mark’s got more hats than he knows what do with and a possibly unhealthy addiction to coffee. Most likely the only photographer ever to be published in both Harper’s Bazaar and High Times, Mark loves to travel but (ironically) never manages to photograph his trips.

MANNY - FULFILLMENT

Manny’s a diehard baseball fan who’s been playing since he learned to walk. Even when his beloved Dodgers aren’t on, you’ll usually find him glued to the MLB network. If you’re looking for the best Mexican food in L.A. ask Manny for his mom’s recipes.

BEN - COPYWRITING

Ben’s worked in a geochemistry lab, interned in the US Senate, taught at dozens of schools, and once got beat up by a black belt (on purpose). This summer he raised $120 through a GoFundMe campaign to see the band Train perform covers of Led Zeppelin’s II, which, yes, was very stupid.
