Meet Our Leaders
Shawne K, a.k.a. The Dark Lord
Is our President and the evil (disturbed) genius behind RightStufAnime.com. The Dark Lord wishes he could be a time traveler so he could go back in time and cut himself off that last glass of wine to prevent hangovers. Seems like a talent he should be able to master without time travel, but we’re not judging. The Dark Lord plans on visiting Saturn as soon as humanly possible, because, “he likes pretty rings”. Actually, he loves shiny things, and can be found staring at the disco ball in his office. He claims it helps him concentrate (plot) better, but occasionally we can hear the sounds of the 70’s coming out of his office. So he might just be stuck in a time warp, but don’t say that to him as he will full on perform the Time Warp for you. Unless of course you want to see that sort of thing, then you should start a social media campaign, but you can’t say we didn’t warn you.
Is our Vice President who oversees the day to day operations and recipient of the pranks played by the Dark Lord and the IT staff. If you get a chance to meet her, ask her for a Reese’s Peanut Butter Easter Egg, she’s still finding them in her office, although they might be a bit stale. Christine’s favorite holiday is Halloween so it was only logical that she joined an Anime company where coming to work dressed as your favorite character would not be frowned upon. When not running around making certain the wheels on the RightStufAnime.com bus are turning, she likes to hang out on her farm making iced tea and visiting with friends. Oh, who’s kidding who, she’s making moonshine and getting drunk with friends, we all have Facebook you know.
Is our Human Resources manager who hopes above all things that big hair and bigger bangs will come back into style. We believe she holds stock in Aqua Net and hopes to get rich if the fad returns. Danni takes excellent care of things employee and compliance related, but we’ve started to question the twenty minutes of Hoola Hooping she’s been making us do lately. She claims it’s an Iowa physical fitness requirement, but we’re not convinced and even if it is, we don’t believe her constant laughing at us is part of the requirement. Danni’s biggest pet peeve is people who are not truthful, hence our dilemma over the Hoola Hooping. Danni’s dream date would be in an elevator with Justin Timberlake. Why an elevator you ask? Our imaginations took an odd turn, so we’ll just let you ponder. If you think you would like to join our zoo (RightStufAnime.com family) click here to look at our open positions and be prepared to Hoola Hoop!
Is our Marketing/Merchandising Manager who believes she has the ability to dance like Clara in the Nutcracker. We’ve seen her and it is more like Elaine from Seinfeld, it’s painful to watch, but you be the judge (click here). As a child, Jessica’s goal was to carry on the family tradition of becoming demolition derby driver, thankfully for us she fell in love with all things Anime. Jessica spends her days combing the universe, well the world, for fabulous products to put on our website. When she’s goofing off, she comes up with the Anime-zing deals we are always offering (click here to see some of her work). A huge K-Pop fan, she tries to entice her team to dress like the members of Got7, but so far no one wants to comply, but she’s relentless so time will tell.
Is our Digital Marketing Manager when he’s not day dreaming about our controller’s Camaro turning into the infamous Bumblebee, he works tirelessly on our digital image. He misses his past life when he was a Bullpen Catcher for the Chicago Cubs and had an endless supply of stadium hot dogs and sunflower seeds. If you were going to be on a movie trivia team, you would want Jake to be your captain as he excels at naming the movie to famous quotes. While he waits patiently for the return of the Sega Saturn so he can once again play Street Fighter 2, he focuses his energy on managing our Social Media and Email Marketing teams. So, if you find yourself inexplicitly purchasing something you didn’t know you wanted Jake and team have worked their magic. FacebookTwitterInstagramTumblrPinterest
Is our Controller with supersonic hearing. He swears he can hear our customers checking out on the website and says the constant dinging all day is going to drive him crazy. When Jim isn’t busy keeping a watchful eye on our finances he enjoys playing the drums with the Eagles, well actually he is thumping on Bumblebee’s steering wheel while listening to the Eagles, but it’s all good. Jim’s favorite sports teams are the Kansas City Royals and the Miami Dolphins, we believe there is some sort of rule against this combination, but we also believe Christine is the one that made the rule. Jim says if he could be supreme ruler of the world for a day he would establish equality for ALL classifications of humans, so all of you who think accountants are secretly evil can now give a collective “Awwww”.
Big John is our Warehouse Manager and when people aren’t looking he’s striking muscle poses in front of a poster of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Who he insists has been his best friend since they both had a crush on the same girl when they were 10. Given we have no evidence to support “The Rock” ever living in Iowa, we’re thinking John just never out grew his make-believe friend. Our customers appreciate how efficiently John runs our warehouse and he attributes his success to two things, first the warehouse being a drama free zone, we assume that means only Comedy Anime titles can be enacted in the warehouse, but we’re not sure. Secondly, he fuels the staff with Granny Smith Apples and LOTS of candy. John’s top bucket list item is to sky dive with “The Rock”, we all support his dream (delusion).
Is our Anime-zing Customer Care Manager who spends his free time scouring the Twitter universe for people who have monkey butlers as the training with his monkey has not been going well. While most days he’s busy assisting our customers in various ways, if time allows you will find him trying to figure out why He-man and Skeletor can’t be friends and his latest theory is that Skeletor is a “One Upper” which both Jordan and He-man hate. We’re not sure how he knows what He-man “hates”, but around here we get to know the Anime and Manga characters pretty well, so we’ll cut him some slack. Jordan and his Anime-zing staff always stand ready to assist our fabulous customers so if you every want to drop them a line and tell them how great they are…(Click Here)
Is Nozomi Entertainment’s Production Manager whose entire team’s actual job is to watch Anime over and over again. Jealous much? Actually, it takes a great deal of patience to watch the same show over and over again, patience she acquired growing up with the Dark Lord. We can’t say more than that, he’s watching. She secretly hopes to become a famous musician playing the kazoo. She says the world accepted “Kenny G” so surely there is room for a Kris G. While she waits to become infamous kazoo player, she practices at the local zoo performing for the otters. Odd audience, but after growing up with the Dark Lord some questions are just better left unasked.
