Art, music,  disc golf, riding my motorcycle….these are some of the things in life that make me happy. More than anything, though, my friends and family are what make me truly enjoy life. This is why I left the corporate world in California behind. With my wonderful wife and kids, I moved back home to live life being happy as much as possible.

Now, together with some of my favorite people, I am able to be part of this amazing thing we call Cloud 9 Expressions! We all have a common goal of not only being happy, but spreading positivity and inspiration throughout society. It’s already been an incredible journey, and I look forward to seeing how far we can go!

Brianna Buchmann

Marketing, Project Management, Customer Service

Our family of 6 recently made the decision to pack up and move away from Northern California to Coeur d’Alene Idaho. This change allowed us the opportunity to be closer to family and friends, and to start a new life together.  I was able to keep my job and work remotely as an IT Project Manager, allowing me to visit my friends and family in CA often.

Our easy going, good natured, fun loving personalities strive for the same in our home, our life, and others around us.  Forming Cloud 9 Expressions allows us to spread these feelings even further outwards while working closely with those we love.  Our entire team is full of passion and excited to take Cloud 9 Expressions to a whole new level!   

Chad Misterek

Product Design, Marketing, Web Analytics, Financial

Hello my name is Chad Misterek and I was born and raised in the wonderful town of Spokane, WA. I received an Accounting and Entrepreneurship degree from Gonzaga and went on to get my Masters in Taxation.

I recently quit accounting to pursue my passion as an entrepreneur. A couple of my close friends and I began kicking around this idea of starting an online apparel company about 4 or 5 years ago. There was something about designing some shirts and sharing them with the world that sounded really fun. I just couldn’t stop saying, “that would be an awesome shirt”. Forming Cloud 9 Expressions has been an amazing experience full of learning. The best part is I get to work with my friends and make a positive impact on the quality of life.

Carissa Medina

Social Media Management, Digital Marketing, Product Design, Project Management

Hi I'm Carissa. I may come across as shy, but I am always excited to explore and try new things. When a few of my friends and family had the idea to start a t-shirt business I jumped at the opportunity. Not only do I get spend more time with some of my favorite people, but I also get to express my interests in a creative way. I enjoy doing a wide variety of outdoor activities so I am very lucky to have grown up in the PNW.

Kurshell Neil

Social Media Management

I try to be the glue that holds everything together while being the reasoning to reckon with. My name is Kurshell; I have a fierce personality and find joy through the happiness of those around me. A true passion of mine is in the social interaction with others. That’s where I find a lot of my inspiration and curiosity in life to lie. If I’m not busy attending classes at Eastern Washington University, you can find me hanging out with my two favorite Weiner dogs, Cosmo and Zooby.

Garrett Busch

Product Design, Marketing, Web Analytics, Customer Service, Logistics

Hi, I’m Garrett, with two R’s and two T’s, I am an abstract thinker who enjoys expressing myself freely. During the day, I refine cannabis oil through the art of molecular separation, while in the evening I work on Cloud 9 designs. I find my inspiration through many of my passions; disc golf, backpacking, music festivals, homebrewing and random inspirational 4am meetings. Whether in the box or out of the box we should always try to keep the creative juices flowing!

Steve Lindberg

General Support

I'm a native of Valencia, CA. who relocated to the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my family in 1994.  I share a passion for the outdoors and enjoy the beauty and recreation nature has to offer.  In 2002 I earned the rank of Eagle Scout and have impeccable survival/outdoor skills.  It's easy to find me golfing, camping, fishing, and hiking in the summer.  In the winter I am snowboarding deep snow all over the PNW.  Music is a big part of my life as well, with an emphasis on EDM and Hip-Hop.  The ability to make friends with virtually anybody, and have a positive outlook on life, brings good energy to everyone I am surrounded by.  In the summer of 2016 I married my beautiful bride Suzie and look forward to building a successful and loving life with her.  My creativity, love of family/friends, and passion for expressing myself are the keys for me to represent Cloud 9 Expressions.  Peace and love!
