MEET THE TEAM
Vik Patel, Owner
Meet Vik, the “mastermind” behind Craft Express. After making waves as the Director of Marketing at Sawgrass Technologies, he's now taken the crafting world by storm with his latest brainchild, Craft Express.
And when he's not busy being a crafting wizard, he's indulging in his other obsession: Star Wars. We're talking full-on fanaticism, people. Lightsabers, action figures, the whole shebang.
When he's not running his new company or hobnobbing at trade shows, he's probably hatching his next brilliant idea. So whether you need a little crafting inspiration or just want to geek out about The Mandalorian, Vik's your guy. Trust us, he's a force to be reckoned with.
Leia Patel, CMO
Meet Leia, the esteemed Chief Morale Officer of our Charleston office. This pint-sized prodigy was born in 2012 and has been keeping spirits high ever since.
Whether she's napping in the stock room or demanding belly rubs like a seasoned pro, she's always on the clock and ready to boost morale. Don't let her youth fool you, folks. Leia is a force to be reckoned with. Her puppy-dog eyes and wagging tail have a 100% success rate in bringing smiles to even the grumpiest of coworkers (Vik)
Meghan, Director of SocialIntroducing Meghan, the mastermind behind Craft Express's social media game. She's the one who's gonna make us Insta-famous, people. With a brain full of knowledge and a heart full of passion, she's the go-to gal for all things sublimation, vinyl, and crafting. And when she's not busy slaying the social media game, she's probably making fun of Vik. I mean, who wouldn't? The guy's a Star Wars fanatic, for crying out loud. But we digress. So if you're looking for some crafting inspiration, or just want to bask in Meghan's social media glory, you know where to find her. It turns out she's not just a crafting whiz, but also a Disney fanatic. Yes, you read that right. The girl eats, sleeps, and breathes Mickey Mouse.
