A Word From The Founder:
I met Pat when we were both 19 and football teammates at Cal Poly SLO. It was a sunny day when I met this star athlete sitting in his covetable LaBomba car with flames on the side. As a walk on player, Pat encouraged and offered advice to help me succeed. To this day, his expert advice with marketing and relationships has helped me tremendously. Thank you Pat for all the good times you brought into my life.
