He’s the newest member of the team! The calm amongst the chaos, Craig joined our warehouse team earlier this year after while his job as a restaurant manager was put on hold (thanks COVID) And because we are SO RAD to work with (right?) we convinced him to stay and to join the team in the office to manage our wonderful international distributors along with all of the fun manufacturing logistics.
We’ve introduced him to Insta’ boomerangs and now surprise Craig we’re featuring you on our blog!!
Let’s get to know Craig a little more…
What do you do at Montii?
I joined the team at Montii back in May this year. I started in the warehouse, picking and packing before moving into the office as Administration / Office Manager in August.
Tell us about your family
I met my wife in London, we were both working and travelling. Being from NZ it wasn’t hard to convince her to come and live with me in Australia! This was now 12 years ago and we’ve just skipped past our 8th wedding anniversary.
We have 3 beautiful children. Alexis is about to turn 7 (OMG), Hugo will be 5 in January and Calvin will be 2 in November.
(Side note, by “beautiful”, when we asked Craig how his weekend was the other week, he replied “bearable!” so we will take the beautiful with a touch of sarcasm haha!)
What is your coffee order?
Short and strong - Small double shot flat white.
Tell us an online brand that you love, and why?
I don't do a lot of online shopping, I tend to leave that for my wife.
(Don’t worry guys, we will soon show him our way!)
Do you have a celebrity doppelganger?
Apart from Tom Cruise, Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington (in his younger years), not really…
What is your spirit animal, and why?
I would have to say the dog. I was given my 1st dog for my 10th Birthday. Since then I can’t really remember a time when I didn’t have one by my side. I love their nature, intelligence and just the general way they lighten up everyone's day.
What weird food combination do you really enjoy?
When I was younger, I would smash a banana and sugar sandwich. I’m a pretty plain eater these days. I mean I only had Guzman Gomez for the 1st time a couple of weeks ago…
(See! I told you we would show him our ways! Guzman is a firm fav’ around the office)
What is the dumbest way you have ever been injured?
When I was about 12 or 13, I was skateboarding with a mate to see some girls. We went down this steep hill (he sat down, I stood up). There was a lot of speed and a lot of death wobbles. Needless to say, I ended up in the hospital missing a fair bit of skin from my face and nearly losing sight in one eye. Don’t miss skating at all!
What is your most unusual talent?
Apparently (or so my wife tells me) I’m a pretty good hoarder - especially cardboard boxes. Everyone loves a well-made box, right?
Do you have any superstitions?
No, not really.
If you could jump into a pool full of something, what would it be?
I think anything from beer to bourbon would be good! Or daddy drink as my son likes to call it!
So that’s it, guys! I’m sure we’ll be seeing many more boomerangs, stories and blog features from Craig.
If you have a question you’d love the team to answer - hit us up! Shoot us a DM on Instagram, we’d love to hear *all* the things you would love to know.
