MEET THE TEAM
A native Seattleite, Christine stuck to her west coast roots for college, receiving her BA in Cross-Cultural Studies from Biola University. It was during these years that she developed an intense love for travel and photography – exploring India, Pakistan and even following the Silk Road to China. Raised by entrepreneurs, she understands that building strong partnerships and giving back is just part of smart business. When she’s not wearing her entrepreneur hat, you can find Christine with her camera at the soccer field with her husband Sol and their two boys or off planning her next family adventure!
After a tumultuous upbringing in the streets of Iran during the Iran/Iraq war, Sol came to the United States at 17 (with a little help from The Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger). As a U.S. citizen, he focused on his education, earning a BA in Communications (with a focus in Advertising and Marketing) from California State Fullerton. In addition to being a loving husband to Christine and father to their two boys, Sol is a soccer aficionado and multi-talented artist.
Born and raised in Southern California, Karen received her MBA from Malibu’s Pepperdine University which took her to Europe where she lived for several years. Once she returned to the US, she began a 19 year career at Oakley that spanned various global positions in sales and marketing. She recently left the corporate world to work closely with startups as a sales and marketing consultant, and we are very lucky to have her! Karen loves all things sport, has a strong sense of adventure, which is a good thing with 2 boys! She is also an avid yogi.
The Downward Dog
Don’t let her quiet demeanor fool you; Cookie loves to be social and serves as an excellent leader to her sister, Poochi. When she isn’t testing our mats, Cookie can be found cuddling up a storm and living a love/hate relationship with the cat pose.
