Uncommon Personalities: Meet Michael Stokes

Michael Stokes | UncommonGoodsMichael Stokes, UncommonGoods Customer Service Team Lead

My hometown…
Technically Brooklyn NY, (Brownsville) by birth, but I spent the bulk of my formative years in Elizabeth NJ. (That’s right, I’m a JerseyBoi.)

I’m passionate about…
I love to cook, and event planning. I love seeing small details come together to make an event a huge success.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
Relaxing on my porch with a homemade margarita, or in my room playing video games.

Something that always makes me laugh…
Anything that Stewie on Family Guy says

My spirit animal is…
That all depends on which religion and/or cultural reference we are looking at this from. Native American – I am the deer. I am a horse in some tribes. And I am a Spider Monkey some African practices such as Yoruba.

My relationship with Mother Nature is…
Not very good. I hate to get dirty, and Mother Nature has a lot of dirt. So I try my best to avoid her.

My favorite place to eat in New York City is…
Caliente Cab on 7th and Bleeker

If I could throw the perfect party…
I’d rent a modern glass house that had a huge pool and a great view. The house would be divided into 3 areas one that is comfortable for sitting and holding conversation with seating for people to eat. The pool area, and another large room for dancing with a healthy mix of reggae and R&B music.

An uncommon fact about me…
I have a twin sister. She is my polar opposite in every way. (We do not get along at all.)

    How come you didn’t mention your younger sister and your sweet, patient and accommodating mother? Or do you speak about us so much everybody already knows us?
