Meet Gabe–the UPS driver and friend of Hello Adorn that takes your jewelry on the first leg of the shipping journey. He doesn’t work for HA, but he does a LOT of WORK for Hello Adorn. We had him on the pod this week to get the real scoop on working at UPS, life in Eau Claire, and Buddhist meditation…just to name a few nuggets. Fueled by iced coffee, wearing a Thrasher Godzilla shirt, and full of good conversation, Gabe’s interview did not disappoint. Listen to his whole ep when you have a moment, but for now–here are some high-level cliff notes (10 things we’ve learned about Gabe) to keep you entertained!
He grows a massive garden.
Some of his favorite produce includes tomatoes and garlic (new this year!).
Burley is named after Burley Coulter from Wendell Berry's novels and Erielle is a combination of Gabe and his wife’s name. NEAT!
He’s been to an Olivia Rodrigo concert.
Not his FIRST choice when it comes to concert-going, but his daughter was sure thrilled.
And definitely notttt Olivia Rodrigo. Two of his favorites are Bob Marley and Beres Hammond.
By participating in a weekly meditation and his own personal quiet time, Gabe is a REAL example of mindfulness in the everyday.
He’s a driving force behind the new skatepark that is coming to Eau Claire.
He’s proud to announce that construction has started! Check it out at Boyd Park in Eau Claire.
He’s from Kansas!
Lawrence, Kansas to be specific–an unexpected gem with a COOL art and music scene.
If you’re wondering what he’s listening to in his single Airpod, it’s Brother Ali’s podcast: The Travelers Podcast.
He’s a regular listener–ALSO a regular listener of the well-known podcast, Jewelry + Stuff.
Oh yes, he’s one of us.
He’s a real pal.
We really love working with Gabe and are forever feeling so dang lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people that keep this place going. Thanks for chatting with us, Gabe!
