Sam "Samothy" Bonnette

Oh our sweet Sam. Quite an interesting specimen that is our main processing guy. If you have put an order through our website anytime after the start of 2021 then he probably knows what your name is. Sam enjoys long walks on the beach with his sidekick Bennet. Bennet is a gorgeous dog who loves his warrantied-harness chew toys. You can find Sam in the warehouse working on his beloved WRX. Not to mention he can shred on the guitar so hit him up if you want to be serenaded by punk rock!
