Who are you working with now?
We have had some offline conversations and I think you and I are headed in a similar direction. What is your plan for this season?
 
“Follow my shit!"
 
JP Rifles: 
How did you get started at JP?
Wen did you move from the assembly line to marketing? Was it mostly photography?
Last year you got thrown head first into taking on JP’s sponsorship and more marketing. What has that been like for you?
I love JP but, I wouldn’t consider them an open book until recently. It has been fun to watch them bust out of their cocoon. What has been your role in that?
What have you learned?

What was your strategy last year?
What can we expect this season?
