There’s a reason why we are called Nutcase Helmets. We are the Nutcases! Controlled craziness is our company MO. Even so, it’s a bit strange that we go so truly batty, so absolutely nutty, over Halloween. For example, thoughtful costuming on Halloween day is NOT optional in our offices.
Part of this is simply self-selection. Our founders, Michael Morrow and Miriam Berman, have a deep fun-loving streak, and it comes to the fore full force on the holidays, with Halloween being one of the biggest dress-up opportunities.
Because Michael and Miriam love costumes, most subsequent additions to the Nutcase family have been the type to carry the tradition forward, including to the numerous trade shows we attend, and we try to make our booth the most fun place to be, not only for visitors but also for us.
Social media manager Meghan Sinnott describes our Nutcase holiday and Halloween spirit like this:
“I personally was always drawn to Michael and Miriam at bicycle events because they always dressed to fit the theme and they were often hosting some sort of photo booth. I’m a ham and love to dress up (I have not just a costume closet, but a costume ROOM). Years before I worked for Nutcase I would make a beeline towards them at events and we’d all have fun in the photo booth! It’s the Portland dream to work in a place where ‘professional’ and ‘fun’ are not mutually exclusive.”
