About the Team
Meet The Team
Hi, I'm Madison. For those of you who don't know me, I am the Co-Founder and President of Only New England. I started Only New England out of my college dorm room with my roommate Charlie trying to combine our love for business with the outdoors and New England experience.
I recently graduated from Roger Willaims University and have lived in Plymouth, MA my entire life. I grew up participating in Boy Scouts which allowed me to camp, hike and experience the outdoors all over New England. You can typically find me riding my skateboard through the Massasoit State Forrest, sailing my tiny sunfish sailboat in the harbor, snowboarding on top of Cannon Mountain, or most of the time...working on Only New England.
Whats going on everyone, Co-Founder (VP of Marketing and Head Designer) Charlie Schaefer here just telling you a little bit about myself. I graduated from Roger Williams University this past May with a double major in Marketing and Management and a minor in Professional and Public Writing. At Roger Williams I played for the hawks hockey team and mens club lacrosse team while helping run the Entrepreneurs Club with our President, Madison. I am from a small town called Wilton which is located in the southwestern part of Connecticut inside of Fairfield County. My freshman year at Wilton High School, I began to teach myself how to use design programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign and graphics soon became a hobby of mine. I create all of our graphic content which can range from taking anywhere between a few hours and even weeks to complete, depending upon the complexity and importance of the design.
Growing up in this part of New England, outdoor activities such as fishing, cliff diving, rock climbing, longboarding, mountain biking, skiing, sailing, and many others played a huge role in the activities and fun that I had with my friends. I grew up skiing out west at places like Squaw Valley, Big Sky Montana, and Jackson Hole but more recently have begun testing the New England terrain where I fell in love with mountains such as Mount Snow, Cannon Mountain, and Waterville Valley. When coming up with the idea for Only New England, we wanted to find a way to combine our passion for the outdoors as well as our love for New England and share this with consumers in the form of apparel. While I fully intend to make Only New England a full time job, in the meantime I am also pursuing a career as an account manager in advertising, with future plans of going back to college in order to receive my Masters.
Just before graduating in May 2017 from Roger Williams University with a Bachelors Degree in Science for Management and with a minor in Psychology, Paul signed up to join to the ONE Team as the VP of Operations Management and as the Head of Social Media. Even though Paul grew up in the south-east corner of New England (Westport, CT), he has always had a strong passion for the outdoors. His main strength is skiing; he grew up skiing at Killington and Okemo and eventually became the captain of the Ski Team at Staples High School in 2013. Paul also enjoys water skiing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, cliff diving, rock climbing, and sailing.
