    BK's Overview Aruba is without a doubt one of my favorite places in the world. Arguably the world's best windsurfing, beautiful beaches, delicious food and fun lifestyle are here, all about 3 hours from the U.S.  I've been coming here for 15 years, and it only gets better each time....

    Launch: May 12, 2016 I technically launched the site on May 12, 2015, but did not advertise it or announce it anywhere because the trademarks were not yet submitted. By June 1, 2016 I finally posted some links via Facebook (once again believing people would rush to buy. They didn’t. My first...

    BK's Overview This year I only had a 3 day window in HK, so I had to make it count. The city itself is composed of multiple islands, with Hong Kong Island being the main attraction. You'll see HK is pretty compact, even more so than urban cities like NYC. Catch the Airport Express (25 min) to...

    Website Design with Strikingly Website design was relatively straightforward using Strikingly. I highly recommend this site builder to novices especially. Effectively a simplified version of square space, the tool allowed me to build some quick templates for www.thenxtstop.com that looked good...

    A Great Feeling The first snapbacks for JFK, MIA, LAX and DFW were ordered in March of 2016. Natalie and her husband Josh, my close friend and ex-roommate from NYC, helped finance the run, which I received in late April. I did 12 of each design (6 navy blue and 6 black). The day they came was...

    A Woman's Touch My friend Natalie has another very critical role in this story. She helped me rethink the way my logo was drawn so that it would appeal to a broader audience. As you may have noticed, the first logo was very “skater bro.” Her point was simple, “If you want or ever envision women...

    The Issue I did not discover until later how fortunate I was to have stumbled upon North Shore Embroidery. Washington the owner is simply a magician with embroidery; his patience and attention to detail to ensure perfection are unrivaled. North Shore Embroidery was and still is the partner I...

    Move to Dallas and Design Hiatus So, the shirts were simply to give away to people. I never intended to sell them, but just wanted to test what people thought.It was really exciting to be wearing a shirt out in NYC or even better, in Dallas or another city, and have people come up to me to say...

    Finalization Tweaks It was not easy to convert the designs to shirts. First and foremost, I had never done screen printing or had anything screen printed for me. I also had no idea what types of shirts were even possible. In my mind I benchmarked on the Ruehl shirts that were slim fit, super...
