Show Notes

Sevag tells us how he and his team started The Parks Project to provide much needed resources to parks. It all began with a work day in a local park.

First Exposure to the Outdoors

I was born in Turkey but moved here when I was like three and grew up in the Southern California area surfing, skating, snowboarding doing all that stuff. So that’s where that background is from. My first job out of college was at O’Neil clothing. I got a job doing sales support and customer service. I didn’t expect to be in apparel or outdoor clothing or anything like that. I just took it as a random job after I graduated I ended up loving it. We were having surf breaks at lunch and had a mini-ramp out front, it was great.
