Otium Squad

Founded in 2014, Otium set out to create an outdoors brand that inspires the active lifestyle by enabling the everyday adventure.

Connor Mooney – Connor is widely regarded as the most painfully average looking member of the team. He handles operations and quality assurance. In between proofreading Mickeli’s Instagram posts, he takes to the wake for some sunset surfing.

Ben Larwa - Ben is the tallest and has the most friends. He also handles all of Otium’s marketing and e-commerce efforts between hitting the slopes and drinking one or ten lakeside beers.

Mickeli Bedore - Mickeli is the oldest of the team and ironically the most immature, thus making him the natural leader of Otium’s Sales & Business Development division. When he is not attempting to motivate the crew by reciting 80’s movie lines to blank stares, he can be found on his lake getting into whatever mischief floats by.

We Need You!

After months of rigorous testing and engineering, we are finally ready to bring the SoftRack to market. With your support, we can complete the production of our first batch and have them shipped in time for summer.
