1. On Our Radar: Victory Press

    Over the years I have gotten more than a few calls from people wanting to “pick my brain” about apparel and trends, specifically in the outdoor industry. One day, out of the blue, I got one of those calls from my homie Jonathan Cammisa. I knew that I liked Jon as soon as I met him. We worked together at Freemans back in the day and as soon as I realized he was from Philly, I was totally sold. All of the best and the worst people I have met in my life come from Philly, so I knew I had a 50/50 chance of becoming lifelong friends with him. So far, so good.

  4. Escape + Explore: Beach Bums, Sonoma County – Part I

    I just spent the last week getting lost in Northern California with some of my best friends. Since it was the 4th of July, we figured that the only real way to celebrate was to go car camping at the beach, it basically doesn’t get more American than that. We managed to stir up quite a bit of adventure, which included some serious beach combing sessions, hiking and coastal scrambling, speed-boating and river rafting, rope swinging and dice games for shells.

  6. On Our Radar: Danny MacAskill + Red Bull #Imaginate

    People are always asking me what the secret to a successful marketing strategy is. My response is usually pretty simple…originality and innovation. I like when brands think outside of the box in terms of approach and execution, regardless of whether it is a campaign, a catalogue or a digital activation. All of these pieces play an integral role in the overall image of the brand. Red Bull knows a thing or two about innovation. They have set the bar pretty high, you could even say they have reached stratospheric heights (lol), so I am not afraid to admit that they have completely blown my mind with their latest episode of Danny MacASkill’s Imaginate series… Read More
