Friday Food 4 Thought: Biz School/Grad School

0 - Published January 29, 2016 by in Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Networking

See the recent Twitter exchange I had, yesterday, with one of my respected followers.  I’ll be honest, I think about this a lot.  But I’ve never pulled the trigger on Biz/Grad school.  Mainly, because: • Being in debt. • Not making $$. • Homework The last point homework is what I find bothersome.  It’s been 16 […]

Putting on the colors.

Before 2015 came to a close, one of my projects that was a customer’s Christmas present, required me to use a mixed-media of pen & ink and watercolor.  It’s been a while since I did something in color, or a wet medium to be exact.  It’s good to get those projects as a reminder that […]

The Making of ‘Patient. Proficient. Persistent-2’

0 - Published December 18, 2015 by in Art, Business, Development, Featured, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Old School

Last year we had a piece titled ‘Patient. Persistent. Proficient.’  It illustrated human hands stringing a head of a traditional wooden stick.  Stringing a stick is hard – very hard.  But what nobody knew was that the piece was part one, of a two part series.  Instead of the traditional graphite, pen & ink mediums used, I made […]

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 […]

Harpoon Brewery–What If?

0 - Published October 21, 2015 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Leadership, Networking, Old School, Risk

(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 […]

Friday Food 4 Thought: NIKE–I DID IT!

0 - Published October 16, 2015 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Featured, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Leadership, Networking, Old School, Risk, Tournaments

(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 […]

Friday Fun w/ LAS @ WILC2015

0 - Published October 9, 2015 by in Lacrosse, Networking, Tournaments

  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 […]

#TBT – Last Time I Saw Jeff Brunelle

0 - Published October 1, 2015 by in Lacrosse, Networking, Uncategorized

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 […]
