0 - Published November 17, 2015 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Networking, Old School

Ha! You all remember that movie line? It’s funny, looking back, how a random and casual meet-up over hot wings led to a great list of project collaborations with Streaker Sports. But we’re not streaking, rather keeping our clothes on and adding some new ones to the list. Not too long ago we released a […]

(Writer’s Note: Let’s file this one under “what if?” In the crazy and adventurous world of entrepreneurship, there are a lot of “what ifs” involved. “What if” it does work?  “What if” it doesn’t? “What if” we don’t try?  The last kind of “what if” is the worst! In the summer of 2013 we had quite an […]

(Writer’s note: Let’s file this post under ‘PERSONAL’.  Did you know Thomas Edison was told by his teachers that he was too stupid to learn?  He invented almost 1,000 lightbulbs before he finally invented one that worked.   This post is not meant to be an attack.  It is meant to be a personal driver and confidence […]

  So what happens when you try to get a good group photo at the WILC2015 with some of the hardest working people in lacrosse media, LaxAllStars? Hardest working because they literally got 1-2 hours of sleep the night before editing and uploading content onto the LAS platform.  But as I was uploading the pics from the WILC […]

Let’s file this one for a #TBT, or #ThrowbackThursday.  Not too long ago, I attended the WILC 2015 in Syracuse/Onondaga Reservation.  I promise to have a more detailed post about that experience that lasted a couple of days for me.  But what struck me when I attended the WILC, was being reunited after 4 years with the […]

Who likes to participate in a contest and win a prize???   You need to find this person somewhere in the WILC2015 (World Indoor Lacrosse Championship) – either in the city of Syracuse, or the Onondaga Reservation in nearby Nedrow. Most likely he’ll be carrying two (2) Alf Jacques handmade, wooden lacrosse sticks with him […]


The Making of ‘Sticks Up’.

“Adapt, or go the way of the dinosaurs.” Those were the exact words from one of my visiting professors in art school who was teaching a liberal arts class.  He required that students email him the homework paper assignments, rather than type, print and “hand” in class.  That was the mid-90’s, and not all students had […]


The Perfect Picture

“The pictures are there.  You just have to take them.” – Robert Capa (Photojournalist) I always liked photography.  I was introduced to traditional photography (black & white) back in 5th grade as a hobby.  My sophomore year in art school, I had to take photography as a requirement.  I never learned the manual settings, rather just shot […]

“Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.” – General George S. Patton Let’s file this one under a “Flashback Friday”, just because.  I was recently asked in a client meeting what my toughest project ever given to me was, and I wondered if it was lacrosse-related, or non-lacrosse-related.  Well the answer […]
