Left Coast T-Shirt Company - Meet Our Staff

David Whitaker started Left Coast T-Shirt Company, his second business, in early 2003. He started his first business, an ecommerce company, in 1999 while simultaneously studying computer science and working as a programmer at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. A desire to save on printed apparel for his existing company led him to begin his own screenprinting operation which eventually moved to the forefront. David sold his first business, the ecommerce company, in 2006, after simultaneously running both companies for three years. He then turned all of his focus to operating Left Coast T-Shirt Company. As with most residents of San Luis Obispo, he does whatever he can to find some time outdoors. In fact, on any given day off he may be found scuba diving, rock climbing, swimming, biking, running, or traveling.

David is also a graduate of Leadership SLO, class 17, and an active participant and volunteer at the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce.

Noemi Vargas joined our team as a Customer Service Assistant but quickly worked her way up to Customer Service Manager. A Central Coast native with a love for cinnamon rolls, Noemi graduated from Cal Poly with a degree in Graphic Communication. When not working, she enjoys the sunny weather while spending time outdoors hiking, taking a stroll on the beach or camping with family and friends.

 

 

 

Kristen is a customer service rep here at Left Coast and our resident dog treat provider. She is a Chico State graduate who moved to the area in 2019 for a change of scenery. When she’s not at work you can find her out enjoying a cupcake or petting every dog she comes into contact with. Did we mention that she loves dogs?
