Ollie Rodgers writes, sings and plays guitar for his band Mr Koo
In the latest instalment of The Style Sheet’s Day in the Life series, we spend a day with creative multi-hyphenate Ollie Rodgers, who is a skater, musician and videographer. Along with co-founding online platform LIKEWISE — which documents contemporary culture in Hong Kong and Asia — Ollie is part of Hong Kong’s local skate community and works within the marketing team at Vans. He also sings, writes and plays guitar for indie rock band Mr Koo.
‘I wake up, check my phone and emails, and then I make myself a bagel for breakfast and take my dog, Frankie, for a walk — she’s a one-year-old Shar Pei-mix I adopted from Catherine’s Puppies in Sai Kung. After that, I get my most important tasks done, like video editing or writing copy for LIKEWISE, or crafting an Instagram post for Vans Skate APAC. I also head into the Vans office in Kwun Tong when I need to get work done or assist with product seeding, which involves sending sneakers to skaters around the region.’
