Fun Friday: Ron West

He’s a monster! As is the company’s mascot, Beau Sheep.

(Aside: Don’t be confused; the name rhymes with Bo’ Peep, but she wasn’t gangster enough to hang.)

DP: Mountains or Beach?

RW: “I’m from the mountains. Mountains definitely. Sand gets everywhere and it’s annoying and you just burn on the beach. The mountains are beautiful. Streams. Trees. Animals. Breeze. Beauty.”

DP: What’s your favorite pizza topping?

RW: “Chicken. Chicken on anything makes it better.”

I wonder if we put chicken on a beach…

Rap artist Macklemore (also of Irish descent) may or may not share Ron’s love of mountains and chicken, but there are other similarities. Ron West names Macklemore as an inspiration, a pop culture icon to whom he can relate, because of his ability to create a powerful platform of universal acceptance. A message Ron hopes to convey through conscious hip-hop: “Your differences are not weaknesses, but strengths. Exploit your differences. Be a Monster.”
