Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.” -Colin Powell (former Secretary of State) One of my lacrosse coaches in boarding school was a man named David Reece, who has most definitely, taught me the importance […]

I’ve been staying up late and working on some ladies recently. Wait, forget that line! I’ve been working late (a bit past midnight), drawing some female lacrosse players to be exact. A few emails and a Twitter Direct Message or “DM” prompted my decision to take action. “Do you plan to make more girls art […]
