Ever wished you could be the one in the interviewer’s seat? Digging down into details you really want to know about or asking that off-the-wall question you’d love carry professionals to answer? Well now you can.
We’re running a series of Reddit AMAs (Ask Me Anything) with the cream of the carry world. Not only do we want to boost the Carryology experience, but we also want to give crew an opportunity to learn from the best. We’re kicking off with Mikey Scott, Global Marketing Director for Herschel Supply Co. Why will this particular AMA be rad? Because Herschel’s undeniably done prodigious things in 6 years and Mikey’s been the man getting the message out – and boy has he nailed it!
My name’s Mikey Scott. Born and raised on the east coast of Canada, I moved to Vancouver in search of real mountains, fueling my passion for sports, culture and travel. Having worked with Nike, Quiksilver and Red Bull, nothing could have prepared me more for the role I’m currently challenged by everyday, as the Global Marketing Director for Herschel Supply Co.
We are a Vancouver-based global accessory brand that launched in 2009. In terms of fast growth, creating the #welltravelled
hashtag movement on Instagram and being labeled as a success story in just six years of business, some might even go as far as saying that Herschel Supply was responsible for reinventing the backpack
So, if you want to chat global marketing or how to build brands, I’m your man.

Tips for using Reddit and their AMAs
If you want to participate in the AMA you will need to have a Reddit account. If you don’t have one already it’s easy (and free!) to sign up for one. Visit Reddit.com
and look for the link near the top right corner of the page (the bit that says “want to join? sign in or create an account in seconds
” – or just click this link 😉 ).
Be aware that it might take some time for questions to start getting answered and that not all questions may be answered. So to improve the chances of your question being answered, take the time to think about what you want to ask and make it a good one! You can also check out some of the past AMAs to get a feel for the format.
