UncommonGoods Warehouse Lead Matthew Disla

Matthew Disla, UncommonGoods Merchant Assistant
My hometown is…
Brooklyn, NY

My favorite process in the UncommonGoods warehouse is…
I love auditing!! I get first-hand knowledge from receiving and handling the merchandise. Plus I get to see new merchandise that comes in so I know what I want to buy!

I’m inspired by…
Art. I’m an artist so any illustrations and lots of colors send me on a creative binge!

The best gift anyone has given me was…
My ex-girlfriend gave me a vintage 1984 Soundwave figure from Transformers. We broke up shortly after, but I got to keep Soundwave.

An uncommon fact about me…
I used to have a lip ring, but took it out after I found a job in advertising. It’s okay, I still have my tongue and left nipple pierced.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
Drawing. I can’t stop. If there is paper around, I must draw on it!!

The word that best describes me…

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…
That there is a company that actually cares about its customers and workers, not just about making money. I feel like this is my second family, and it’s a reunion that takes place five days a week and I get paid to attend.

Would you rather … Relive every year of the ’80s or be a band member of The Smiths?
I would give anything to say I wrote the song “I Won’t Share You” by The Smiths. Definitely a band member… preferably, the lead singer.
