“Work hard, play hard. You don’t win all the time. That is what makes winning sweet!” As we approach the closing of the Summer Olympics in Rio, which started while I was up at the Lake Placid Summit Lacrosse tournament, earlier this month, I was reminded where I was – in Lake Placid, NY. Lake […]

‘Sports’ and ‘Art’ aren’t just my sole interests in life. 72 years ago, on this day, was labeled ‘D-Day’ and some have considered it the ‘most important day in the 20th Century.’ I read the book by Stephen Ambrose back in art school, not for a class, but for self-enrichment purposes. It remains one of […]

I was cleaning up the computer when I found this funny pic from the LaxAllStars 2011 ‘Grow the Game’ Invitational in Bangkok, Thailand. Sticking out like tourists, we were “taken for a ride” by fake tour guides at the Grand Palace, who coordinated a tour made up of multiple ‘Tuk-Tuks’ for “planned visits” to different locations surrounding the […]

“You miss 100% of the shots you DO NOT take.” – Wayne Gretzky I love to travel, but more of international travel. I also love to take a lot of photography to document the experience. So, one year my wife and I took the chance for a road trip from NYC to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia – Canada, because we knew […]

“You’d be surprised about listening. Listening doesn’t cost anything. Listening is free.”  (Richard Branson – founder, Virgin Group) (Writer’s Note: A very happy birthday to my former intern, Brian Pollard.

The ‘VR’ Line–Our Private Label

0 - Published April 21, 2016 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse

Nothing happens overnight.  Of the many products we offer, we’ve been always trying to “solve” the apparel side. The word “solve” is in quotations because any new product development, will always have their problems looking for any solutions, no matter the stage. In our case, we wanted to offer a higher-end of apparel that stood out a […]

Friday Food 4 Thought: It All Starts On Paper.

0 - Published April 15, 2016 by in Art, Business, Development, Inspiration

In college, I had an internship at a major magazine publication in NYC. While the internship was mostly “gopher” work, in the same room was the Design Director who would always have a sketch pad out, head down, doodling his design compositions. He hardly spoke in the interest to start office-room conversations, but you could tell he was […]

We love seeing our customers share our purchased products via email, social media, etc. Each customer has their own specific use(s).
